If there were 3 people living in a house one was a ex felon and wasnt home and a gun was found in his room but wasnt his nor did he have any knowledge of it bein in there would it stand in trial
1 Answer from Attorneys
"stand" at trial?
You said it was 'his room' in the house, and a firearm was found in 'his room', which indicates it was under 'his' control and possession. Claiming he didn't know about it does not seem very credible. He would need a lot of credible testimony and evidence to prove he didn't know.
I'd say his attorney if going to have difficulty trying to prevent the prosecutor from proving to a jury that he was a 'felon in possession', which carries a stiff prison sentence and a 2nd strike.
