MARION COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The son of recently convicted Hub City pastor Kenneth Fairley turned himself in Monday to Marion County authorities.

William Vaston Fairley, 36, turned himself in on a felony warrant for his arrest in connection to an indictment for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Vaston was stopped on April 13, 2014 on U.S. 98 in the Foxworth community of Marion County.

According to Marion County Sheriff's Department officials, Vaston was pulled over for an expired tag.

The report details that Vaston was cooperative and told deputies there was a gun in the vehicle during the stop.

He was taken into custody and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Monday, Vaston turned himself in on the active warrant and had his bond set at $10,000.

He is set to appear in court Oct. 13, 2016.

Vaston's previous conviction came in 2007, in Forrest County for possession of a controlled substance.

Vaston was accompanied by Hattiesburg City Councilwoman Deborah Delgado and his legal counsel yesterday when he went surrender to authorities.
