NOT GUILTY: 2 counts of possession of a firearm without an FID card, 1 count possession of ammunition, 2 counts of possession of a loaded firearm with a potential armed career criminal enhancement.

John Doe was charged in the Middlesex Superior Court with 2 counts of possession of a firearm without an FID card, 1 count possession of ammunition, 2 counts of possession of a loaded firearm, and one count of wanton destruction of property and was facing potential armed career criminal sentencing enhancements. Veronica White and Ben Leatherman of White & Associates successfully suppressed as evidence against Mr. Doe a key that linked him to a padlock securing the bag in which the firearms were found, significantly weakening the Commonwealth’s case.  After a 4-day trial, Mr. Doe was found not guilty on all 5 firearm counts and guilty only on the destruction of property, for which he was sentenced to less than 30 days in jail which was deemed served.  White & Associates presented a strong defense to rebut the Commonwealth’s circumstantial evidence and the jury returned a verdict of not guilty for all of the severe charges.
