Possession of Firearm by Felon
This charge is very serious. First the State must show that the accused is a convicted felon, which is usually easy for the State to prove. Second, the State must prove possession of a firearm by this same person. This second prong will be the most likely challenged scenario in this type of charge. We have a lot of experience with these charges and have been successful fighting them. With any possession case, we are either going to look at actual or constructive possession. Actual possession is a situation where the weapon was on the accused person. Constructive possession is in the vicinity (car) or some area that the accused is to control.
While fighting these charges are difficult, we focus on looking for any way we can to challenge the States evidence. Many firearm by felon cases depend on the stop or initial encounter with the police. Was it legal? If so, was the search legal? We look into every aspect of your case to make sure you are confident with your representation. We will explain what is good and bad about your case and eliminate any questions you have about your case. Possession of firearm by felon is a serious offense, you need an attorney who understands that and will fight aggressively to help you.
