Palomo gets 46 months for possessing guns, ammo

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Rudy Gumataotao Palomo was sentenced to 46 months behind bars for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.  Upon completion of his prison term, Palomo will be placed on supervised release for three years. In July of last year, Palomo was found in possession of a rifle when he pointed it at a relative. Because he has prior felony convictions, Palomo is prohibited from carrying a firearm or ammunition. 

U.S. Attorney Alicia Limitaco says those felons who possess guns or ammunition will face aggressive prosecution and will receive long prison sentences.
