Felon In Possession Of A Firearm Sentenced In Federal Court
MOBILE, Ala. – Nathan Edward Prim, 32, of Foley, was sentenced in federal court for his possession of a firearm after he had been convicted of a felony offense. Prim was also sentenced on a second count, which charged that he was illegally in possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number. Prim had entered guilty pleas to both charges in March of 2014.
At the sentencing hearing on June 26, United States District Court Kristi Dubose heard testimony from a Mobile police officer about the facts surrounding Prim’s arrest. The officer testified that Prim attempted to pull the gun from his waistband when he physically restrained Prim and a second officer disarmed him. The judge imposed a sentence of 160 months imprisonment in Prim’s case. Prim will pay $200 in special assessments, and following his release from imprisonment, he will serve three years on supervised release.
The case was investigated by the Mobile Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted in the United States Attorney's Office by Assistant United States Attorney Gloria Bedwell.
