A Salina man gets a three-year federal prison sentence in a firearms case.

According to U.S. Barry Grissom’s office, 22-year-old Kalun James Purucker was sentenced Monday to 37 months in federal prison on a federal firearms charge.

Purucker pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm. In his plea, he admitted that the Salina Police Department stopped a car in which he was a passenger on April 9, 2012. Police recovered a .380 caliber handgun and ammunition.

At the time, Purucker was prohibited by federal law from possessing a firearm because of a prior felony conviction.
