Ineligible person in possession of firearm

CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the evidence supported defendant’s conviction of felon in possession of a firearm?    

Defendant was convicted of felon in possession of a firearm in federal court.  Defendant appealed.  On appeal, defendant argued that the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction.  The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that the evidence was sufficient to show that the defendant actually or constructively possessed the firearm, so the judgment is affirmed.

United States v. Perkins, 21-1893, per curiam.  Appealed from the United States District Court, Eastern District of Arkansas.

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