BOISE, Idaho (KLIX)-A Nampa man is facing 20 years behind bars for having a firearm that had its serial number scratched out. According to Acting U.S. Attorney Rafael Gonzalez, Jr. Daniel Vega, 44, admitted to unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number this week in court. In May of this year, Vega was found by a Idaho Department of Correction Probation and Parole search with a .45 caliber pistol that had its serial number scratched out. Vegas wasn't supposed to have a firearm because of a previous conviction for felony domestic battery that resulted in traumatic injury. Sentencing is set for February next year and could get up to ten years in federal prison on each charge.
