By FindLaw Staff on August 03, 2009 5:40 PM

Conviction for firearms possession is affirmed where: 1) the evidence was sufficient to convict him on the charged offense, and the order of protection against him was valid; 2) the court did not abuse its discretion in allowing a limited amount of evidence regarding the ammunition found in the house for a proper purpose; 3) defendant's claims of prosecutorial misconduct have no merit; and 4) the court did not err in admitting the torn, initialed, edited and unsigned statement drafted by the detective who interviewed him.
