Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson Secures NOT GUILTY Verdict in Firearm, Theft Case
Updated: Mar 13
In September 2018, the Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson secured a NOT GUILTY verdict for our client charged with illegal possession of a firearm and theft. If convicted, our client was facing decades in prison.
Our client was charged with possessing a firearm after being convicted of domestic violence and larceny of a rental car. We argued that our client was not barred from carrying the firearm, and that he did not intend to steal the car.
The judge DISMISSED the firearm charge based on our legal argument, and the jury agreed that our client did not intend to steal the car and found him NOT GUILTY.
