According to WLOX, former 3 DOORS DOWN bassist Todd Harrell has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for possession of a firearm by a felon.
Harrell has been in jail since June, when deputies responded to an alarm that went off during an alleged domestic dispute at Harrell‘s home in St. Martin, Mississippi, a community in Jackson County. Deputies said they saw guns and drugs.
Judge Robert Krebs gave Harrell the maximum penalty for the crime at his sentencing Thursday in Jackson County Circuit Court.
He still faces a jail contraband charge after his wife allegedly mailed him the prescription drug Suboxone at the Jackson County jail in August.
Back in 2013, Harell was charged with vehicular homicide in Nashville for driving drunk and killing 47-year-old Paul Shoulders.
While awaiting trial on that charge, Harrell was arrested again on a DUI charge for driving under the influence of drugs — a charge which led to his firing from 3 DOORS DOWN.
Harrell pleaded guilty in 2015 and was sentenced to two years in prison. With credit for good behavior, he served roughly a year, according to media reports.
Harrell was an original member of 3 DOORS DOWN, which formed in 1996.
Another original 3 DOORS DOWN member, guitarist Matt Roberts, died of an overdose in 2016 after retiring from the group in 2012.
