Felon in possession of a firearm

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the federal firearms statute did not violate the Second Amendment in an unconstitutional manner as applied?    

Where a defendant, who was found guilty of illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon argued that the application of the federal firearms statute violated his rights under the Second Amendment, the statute did not violate constitutional rights of the defendant as applied, but the defendant was improperly sentenced as an armed career criminal, so the sentence is vacated and remanded for resentencing.

United States v. Williams, 20-3311, per curiam.  Appealed from the United States District Court, District of Nebraska.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
