The feds filed charges against Rocky Houston while his appeal of a felony conviction was still pending in state court.
His lawyer contends that was a big mistake and the federal charges should be thrown out.
“In this case, the government both figuratively and literally jumped the gun,” attorney Michael P. McGovern said in a motion that requests dismissal of the federal indictment.
Houston faces 14 counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. He faces up to 140 years in prison if convicted.
