NOT GUILTY Jury Verdict on Gun Charges in Chelsea District Court

chelsea criminal defense lawyerChelsea gun lawyer

On April 4, 2022, the Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson secured a NOT GUILTY jury verdict on gun charges in Chelsea District Court.  Our client needed a firearms attorney in Chelsea because he was charged with possessing a firearm without a license.  He was facing 18 months mandatory minimum jail time if convicted.

Our client was stopped in the passenger seat of a stolen automobile.  According to police, he was seen moving from the front seat to the back seat of the car, and the gun was found in the floorboard in the back of the car.

Our defense was that our client did not constructively possess the firearm.  The jury agreed and found our client not guilty.
