Federal law prohibits the possession of machine guns.

On July 26, 2022, Desmon pleaded guilty to multiple firearms offenses, including dealing and manufacturing firearms without a license, and possession and transfer of machine guns.

Desmon is currently in federal custody and will be transferred to the custody of the federal Bureau of Prisons.
