Yes he was charged with possession of a fire by a felon. The cops pulled me over for a broken third tail Light. Then he said he smelled weed. He searches my car and finds a loaded firearm under his seat they put him in cuffs. He stated he didn't know nothing about it which is true and I also at the time aids it wasn't mine but I lied. I was chilling with my step brother and some of his friends, they was leaving and somebody forgot the gun so I kept it and put it in my car. I have no prior or felonies or misdemeanor. I already contacted his court appointed attorney and left several messages admitting to the firearm. And this coming Wednesday I'm suppose to come in and meet
I never got a summons to court or anything
Is there a chance I could go to prison?
Should I get my own attorney? Honestly can I really trusty the court appointed attorney
One last question sorry them I'll rate. But I already told his attorney it was mine
Ok Thanks for telling me that. I wanted to ask I talked to my bf and explained what my interpretation of everything was. And he stated that he feels they're just going to lock him up
Can you help me?
