Allahjuan Calhoun Imprisoned For Gun Possession

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Vermont

The United States Attorney for the District of Vermont announced that Allahjuan Calhoun, 29, of Yonkers, NY, was sentenced yesterday in United States District Court in Burlington to 26 months of imprisonment following his guilty plea to a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.  U.S. District Judge Christina Reiss also ordered that Calhoun serve a two-year term of supervised release following completion of his prison term.

On January 31, 2019, law enforcement authorities arrested Calhoun on state charges of aggravated domestic assault and possessing a firearm as a prohibited person.  The arrest took place after state and federal officers executed a search warrant at a residence in Barre where Calhoun had been staying.  During the search, officers seized a .38 caliber revolver that had Calhoun’s DNA on it.  The state dismissed its charges last May after a federal grand jury indicted Calhoun for being a felon in possession of the gun.  Calhoun pled guilty to the federal charge in October.  Calhoun is prohibited from possessing firearms because of a 2017 Vermont felony conviction for possessing heroin.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Barre Police Department.

Calhoun is represented by Assistant Federal Public Defender David McColgin.  The prosecutor is Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Waples.
