Penalties for a felon in possession of a firearm are extensive and depend on someone’s specific situation such as mitigating factors.

Felon in possession of a firearm can result in:

  • Up to 10 years in prison
  • Up to $250,000 in fines

Our defensive strategies for a felon in possession of a firearm case often include challenging an illegal search and seizure where the police have committed constitutional errors. This can lead to the filing of a Motion to Suppress where the court rules that the evidence seized violated the Fourth Amendment of the United States and cannot be used against you to prove the case at trial. Other defensive strategies include jury trial to challenge whether the firearm was possessed by the accused.
