Parolee Back In Jail Over Gun Possession Charges

Even though California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, it is generally illegal across the nation to purchase or own guns under certain conditions. These conditions may include being a convicted felon, having committed a crime of violence or even having a mental-health condition.

In San Bernardino, like in other cities across the country, if you are convicted of a gun crime, you are not permitted to own or possess a firearm. Additionally, when you are placed on parole, there are orders set forth that you must comply with. A man recently discovered what happens when a person chooses to ignore both the law and a judge’s orders.

Alfredo Barajas, 37, was placed on parole after being convicted of possession of a loaded firearm. During a probation compliance check, a sheriff’s deputy located two handguns in Barajas’ bedroom. The parolee was in possession of a .380-caliber handgun and two loaded .38-caliber handguns.

The deputy arrested Barajas and charged him with being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was also charged with a parole violation. Barajas was booked into the local jail. His court date was not immediately known.
