Possession of a Firearm, Other Serious Convictions Avoided
Our client was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, carrying a firearm without a license, several drug offenses, and a minor charge of resisting arrest. He had a prior criminal record that meant he faced a standard sentencing range of 5 to 10 years in prison on the weapons offenses alone. He knew he needed help and turned to the Pittsburgh criminal defense attorneys at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC to represent him on the illegal possession of a firearm, carrying without a license, drug offenses, and resisting arrest charges.
As part of our strategy of fighting the more serious charges at trial, our client admitted to resisting arrest. He subsequently was found not guilty of the illegal possession of a firearm, carrying without a license, and drug charges.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
