POSSESSION OF FIREARM WITH INJUNCTION

Prior to hiring us, the client was served with an Injunction and ordered not to have contact with his ex-girlfriend, and not to possess any firearms. Subsequently, the ex-girlfriend called the police and alleged that the client contacted her by telephone. When the police went to talk to the client, they claim he had a firearm in his possession. The client was arrested and charged with two misdemeanor counts. That’s when he called Longwell & Gentle, P.A. We prepared the case for trial. On the trial day, the case was positioned to have a high likelihood of a Not Guilty verdict. As a result, the State offered a favorable plea offer. The client agreed to pay a $150 fine in exchange for the State agreeing to have the court withhold the conviction on count one, and drop count two altogether.
