At Hessler Law, we recently assisted an IT professional when he was charged with having a handgun in a prohibited area of the Indianapolis airport. Apparently, he inadvertently left a firearm in a carryon bag, which was fund during his prescreening.
While it appeared to be an innocent mistake, this oversight exposed him to serious fines and a permanent gun conviction. We discussed our defensive strategy with the prosecutor and clearly demonstrated his lack of criminal intent. Therefore, the case was not officially filed and he was free to move on.
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.
