Date Published:

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Lawrence P. McLellan, Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, VACATED IN PART, AND REMANDED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J. (8 pages)

            Isaiah Steide appeals his convictions for dominion and control of a firearm by a felon and trafficking in a stolen weapon.  OPINION HOLDS: We find sufficient evidence to support Steide’s conviction for dominion and control of a firearm by a felon.  We find the evidence insufficient to prove Steide knowingly acquired a stolen firearm.  Therefore, we affirm Steide’s conviction and sentence for dominion and control of a firearm by a felon, and we vacate his conviction and sentence for trafficking a stolen weapon.  We remand for entry of judgment of acquittal on the trafficking-a-stolen-weapon charge.
