 BOISE – Kim Jarod Kouros Firouzbakhsh, 35, of Idaho Falls, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 27 months in federal prison for the unlawful possession of a firearm, Acting U.S. Attorney Rafael M. Gonzalez, Jr. announced today. U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill also ordered Firouzbakhsh to serve three years of supervised release following his prison sentence.

According to court records, on May 2, 2020, Nampa police officers responded to a report of domestic violence. Officers identified Firouzbakhsh as a suspect and discovered a firearm in his pants pocket. Firouzbakhsh is prohibited from possessing firearms due to a prior felony drug conviction and was on parole at the time of the offense. Firouzbakhsh pleaded guilty to the firearms charge on March 16, 2021.

Acting U.S. Attorney Gonzalez praised the joint investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Nampa Police Department, which led to charges. “It is illegal for convicted felons to possess firearms. Repeat offenders caught with illegal weapons in Idaho will face federal prosecution,” said Mr. Gonzalez. “The Nampa Police Department and departments throughout Idaho are working closely with ATF to hold repeat offenders accountable for their continued criminal actions. We will continue to work together to make cases to keep our community safe from criminal offenders,” he concluded.

This case was prosecuted as part of the Department of Justice’s Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) program. PSN is the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
