Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to helpTO convinct you of possession of a firearm they have to prove that either you possessed it physically (like, for example, on your person) or you had constructive possession (you placed it someplace that you were able to go to an recover it when you desired). If the state can prove that you put the weapon in the place it was recovered? They can convinct you of possession.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

Thanks. They (the state) have the burden to prove you knew where it was and were able to access it...unless they can prove this (beyond a reasonable doubt)? They can not convict you

The state has the burden to prove you guilty...not the other way around. You can testify at trial you had no idea where the gun was...if the jury believes you, you will be acquitted.
