Dallas man charged with killing rapper Mo3 sentenced for firearms
A Dallas man accused of murdering rapper Mo3 was sentenced for possession of a 9mm semi-automatic pistol.
According to a release from U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Chad E. Meacham, Kewon Dontrell White, 23, received 105 months, or nearly nine years, in a federal prison after pleading guilty in May to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
White was sentenced on November 8 by U.S. District Judge Karen Gren Scholer.
White was previously convicted of felony offenses involving unauthorized use of motor vehicles and evading arrest and detention. That offense took place in August 2020, when officers saw White commit a traffic violation on his dirt bike while driving down West Pleasant Run Road in Lancaster.
They tried to pull him over, but he fled the scene. Officers chased him as he crashed his dirt bike and ran on foot, before he was detained a short time later and discovered the pistol in his pants pocket.
White was arrested for Noble's murder on December 9, 2020, after being identified by a witness. That case remains pending.
