Chester Man Sentenced for Gun Crimes
CONCORD - Julion Adamski Parker, a/k/a Julian Iden Lima, 27, of Chester, was sentenced to time served (approximately 16 months) and fined $1,000 for violating federal firearms laws, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.
According to court documents and statements made in court, on July 11, 2017, Chester Police Department received a call that Parker was inside the Chester General Store with a gun in plain view. Knowing that Parker previously had been convicted of impersonating a federal officer, members of the Chester Police arrested Parker for being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon.
Further investigation showed that Parker had previously purchased guns on two occasions by completing documents that falsely claimed that he had never been convicted a felony in any court. On March 30, 2017, Parker purchased a Mosin-Nagant, Model M91/30, 7.62 X 39 mm caliber rifle from a federally licensed firearms dealer in Hooksett. On June 20, 2017, he purchased an Arsenal, Model SAM7R, 7.62 X 39 mm rifle from a federally licensed firearms dealer in Londonderry.
Parker previously pleaded guilty on May 2, 2019, to being a felon in possession of a firearm and two counts of making false statements in order to acquire a firearm. After being released from custody, Parker will be on supervised release for three years. During the first six months of his release he will be subject to home confinement with electronic monitoring.
"In order to protect public safety, it is essential to keep guns out of the hands of criminals," said U.S. Attorney Murray. "We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to identify, prosecute, and incarcerate criminals who unlawfully obtain and possess firearms."
This matter was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Chester Police Department. The United States Marshal’s Service assisted in the apprehension of Parker. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Debra Walsh.
The case is part of ATF’s Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative, which is a federally-funded program intended to reduce gun violence through law enforcement training, public education, and aggressive law enforcement efforts to investigate and prosecute gun-related crimes.
