INGRAM LAW LLC has successfully had many of these cases dismissed in federal court as in the case of United States v. Timothy Lowe. Our client was charged with 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(1), which is a felon in possession of a firearm. In this case, a confidential informant gave information to government agents concerning our client possessing a firearm in his vehicle. The firearm was located during the course of a traffic stop. After extended discovery in the case and requesting the government to disclose the name of the informant as it related to our client’s defense, the government was unable to provide the name of the informant. This case dismissed as a result.

It is Possible to Fight Felon in Possession of a Firearm Charges
Being charged with illegal possession of a firearm is very serious. If possible, our goal is to have the charges reduced or dismissed. In many of these cases the defenses may be procedural defenses, civil rights defenses and fact based defenses, which are legitimate. In order to gain a conviction, the prosecutor must prove both your intent to possess and control the firearm. In my experience as a criminal defense lawyer, I 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 firearm since the home is not your residence.
In an alarming number of our cases, our clients are accused of illegal possession of a firearm just because they were riding in a car with another person who was carrying a firearm. In such cases, we may look into whether the traffic stop was legal, or whether the police violated your rights during the search.
