A Topeka man has been sentenced to federal prison on a firearm charge.
31-year-old Joseph Buschbom was sentenced Thursday to 41 months in prison.
Buschbom pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.
In his plea, he admitted that he possessed a 38 caliber handgun on June 12, 2013 when he drove into a driver’s license check lane being operated by the Topeka Police Department.
Officers found later that the car was stolen and there was an outstanding warrant for Buschbom’s arrest.
