State of Minnesota v. C.C. (Carver County, 2014):
Client was charged with felon in possession of a firearm after the police executed a search warrant on Client’s house and found firearms. Client was convicted of a felony a few years prior to this alleged offense and could not possess any firearms. The search warrant claimed that Client was implicated in an ATM theft at a nearby bar. However, we challenged the legality of the search warrant because the facts attested to by law enforcement in the application for the search warrant and the facts actually presented by the evidence differed drastically. After intense negotiations with the State, the State agreed to DISMISS all felon in possession of a firearm charges.
State of Minnesota v. A.T. (Anoka County, 2013):
Client was charged with felon in possession of a firearm when the police found that Client possessed a shotgun in his house. Client was convicted a felony in the early 1990s. The State DISMISSED the charges because we proved that the felon in possession statute did not apply to Client as Client’s gun rights were restored by a Minnesota State Warden, which prohibited any further prosecution for a felon in possession of a firearm.
