Steven Knecht Wins Dismissal of Handgun Charges!


Steven Knecht won the dismissal of felony carrying a handgun without a license charges for his client.

Police officers went to a residence to serve a search warrant. A female exited the apartment wearing a male leather jacket. The female was searched and a handgun was found in the jacket. The female claimed the jacket and handgun belonged to Knecht’s client who had also left the apartment and she was carrying it for him. Knecht successfully argued that under Indiana law, a person shall not carry a handgun in any vehicle or on or about the person’s body without a license. Since Knecht’s client did not have a handgun in his vehicle or on his person, he could not be guilty of carrying a handgun without a license.
