Charged with Possession of a Firearm

Other Crimes

Female client in Long Beach Courthouse, July 2018.

Years and years ago, our client had legally purchased a handgun. She stored it in her home and never fired it. Then she was convicted of a felony theft offense, which made it illegal for her to own a gun. More than a decade past without incident. Due to recent changes in California law as well as increased enforcement efforts, law enforcement officers came to her door looking for the gun. She was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in violation of Penal Code section 29800(a)(1), a felony. We assembled mitigation materials and explained the situation. Through negotiations with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, a fair and equitable outcome was reached and the case was reduced to a misdemeanor for community service.
