An active duty military officer and lawyer was traveling through Ohio while visiting family and was stopped for having a cracked windshield. The State Troopers searched the man’s car and found a loaded pistol in the vehicle. The man resides in a state that does not require any sort of permit to own, possess, or conceal a loaded firearm in a vehicle. His having a loaded firearm in his vehicle was perfectly legal where he was from, but in Ohio, unbeknownst to him, he needed a permit, which he didn’t have. This man, military officer, and lawyer was arrested and charged with a felony gun charge where if convicted he could have been sent to prison for up to 18 months. In addition to that, he would likely have lost his law license, and been dishonorably discharged from the military. The Hiltner Trial Lawyers Firm was selected by this man from across the country and by telling his story and vigorously defending his rights, all charges were dismissed. The man’s firearm, which was given to him by a family member, was even returned to him.
