United States v. Timothy Alexander Lowe
Summary: the client was charged with 18 u.s.c. 922(g)(1), which is a felon in possession of a firearm. The government agents received information from a confidential informant regarding our client possessing a firearm that was located in his vehicle. The firearm was located during the course of a traffic stop. After much discovery and requesting the name of the informant as it related to the client’s defense, the government was unable to provide the name of the informant. Therefore, the case was dismissed.
Disposition: case dismissed.
We will do our best to achieve a similar result for you. We will diligently study the facts of your case and provide you with an aggressive and sophisticated defense that gives you an excellent chance of avoiding further punishment.
Being charged with illegal possession of a firearm is very serious. Our goal is to have the charges reduced or dismissed, if possible. There are legitimate defenses in these cases: civil rights defenses, procedural defenses, and fact-based defenses. In order to gain a conviction, the prosecutor must prove both your intent to possess and control the firearm. In our vast combined experience as a criminal defense lawyers, we have often found that someone other than the convicted felon was keeping a firearm in the house, often a girlfriend or relative. In some cases, such as when neither the residence nor the utilities are in your name, we may be able to demonstrate that you had no intent to possess a gun since the home is not your residence.
In a surprisingly large number of cases, our clients have been accused of illegal gun possession because they were riding in a car with someone who was carrying a gun. In such cases, we may look into whether the traffic stop was legal, or whether the police violated your rights during the search. Your Constitutional rights are always our top concern and we will dedicate ourselves to protecting them when you call us at 205-335-2640 to discuss the details of your case in a free consultation.
