A federal judge Friday sentenced a 34-year-old Tacoma man to 10 years in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm.
A jury convicted Bernard "BK Boo" Glenn in February.
Members of the South Sound Gang Task Force arrested Glenn at a Tacom-area night club in May 2008. He was carrying a 9 mm pistol in his waistband, according to a news release issued Friday by the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Glenn was prohibited from carrying a gun after being convicted of numerous felonies in California and Washington over the previous 11 years, the news release states.

U.S. District Court Judge Ronald Leighton called Glenn "a danger to the community" while handing down the maximum sentence.
