TOPEKA, Kansas – A Salina man was sentenced Monday to 37 months in federal prison on a federal firearms charge, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Kalun James Purucker, 22, Salina, 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.
