County: Ramsey (2011)

Charges: Ineligible Person in Possession of Firearm

Outcome: In Minnesota, if you are charged with being an ineligible person in possession of a firearm, there is a 5-year MANDATORY MINIMUM sentence. We filed a motion for a downward durational departure, and the judge GRANTED it. Our client had to serve 90 days in jail rather than 5 years in prison.
