CLIENT WAS CHARGED WITH: Felony Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon

She got into a heated argument with her boyfriend. She is alleged to have taken the boyfriend’s gun and ran out of the house. The boyfriend called the police and told them that she had his gun and was not licensed to carry or possess a gun. The police quickly spotted the client walking down the sidewalk with a duffle bag. She allowed the police to search where they found the handgun.  She faced a felony conviction and up to 3 years in prison. Mr. Weisberg met with the prosecutor on two occasions and convinced her to drop the felony gun charge. In the end, the client accepted an offer to pled guilty to a misdemeanor charge of reckless conduct. The client served no jail time and will be eligible to have this case sealed.
