The district court allowed Priemazon to possess a firearm but prosecutors appealed arguing that violated federal law that prohibits felons from possessing a firearm. The appeals court sided with the state, saving Priemazon was place on probation as a consequence of the deferred sentence. That means he must comply with federal gun laws.
