By FindLaw Staff on August 24, 2009 4:56 PM

Defendant's conviction on two counts of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition under 18 U.S.C. section 922(g)(1) is affirmed in part and remanded in part where: 1) district court committed plain error in convicting and sentencing defendant on both counts charged under section 922(g)(1), as defendant's possession of both a firearm and ammunition, seized at the same time in the same location, supports only one conviction and sentence under the section; and 2) defendant has met his burden to show that his substantial rights were affected by his unauthorized conviction and sentence on both counts charged under section 922(g).
