BARRE — 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.

Calhoun was also ordered to serve a two-year term of supervised release following completion of his prison term.

On January 31, 2019, 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.
