BATON ROUGE - A 30-year-old man has been convicted in Baton Rouge federal court on a charge that he was a felon in illegal possession of a firearm in May 2009 when two police officers stopped him for a traffic violation.

Lonnie Poydras, of Baton Rouge, became a convicted felon in 2001 when he admitted he was part of a three-man crime spree that included the shooting death of Demetrius White.

A jury of seven women and five men convicted Poydras on Wednesday.

The Advocate reports U.S. District Judge Brian A. Jackson scheduled Poydras' sentencing for July 12.
