Lynne Torgerson, Criminal Defense Attorney, wins dismissal of felon in possession of a firearm case
The facts essentially were that Ms. Torgerson's client, due to prior felony convictions, was ineligible to possess a firearm. In 2016, a fire occurred in the attic where her client was sleeping. Client had some personal property stored in the attic and was sleeping in the attic when the fire occurred. However, other people also had access to the attic. The home had been inherited by the client's mother, who also lived in the home. Years before, the grandparents had lived in the home, and the grandfather was known to own firearms. The Fire Department responded and put out the fire. During the process of putting out the fire, a good number of items were thrown around. After the fire was extinguished, a firearm wrapped in plastic was found in the attic. Client was charged with felon in possession of a firearm. Because the evidence was circumstantial, and because there existed a reasonable hypothesis inconsistent with the client's guilt, the case was dismissed for lack of probable cause. Bravo Ms. Torgerson!
