What can my brother do about the possession of a weapon? 8 Answers as of June 03, 2013My brother is a convicted felon and there was a gun in the trunk of my car in which no one knew about. My brother had my car on Sunday night, but I had the car that previous Friday and Saturday. A neighbor walked across the street to talk to my brother and his friend and went back across the street and the police came and decided to search my car and without notifying me or my grandfather, the owner of the house. My brother was arrested and the other people that were out there at this same time who had warrants for their arrests were let go and the police told my brothers friend to take my car and do whatever he wanted to do with it, he (who also had a warrant for his arrest) did take it to my house. What can be done in this matter?

Was your brother charged locally or by the feds? In either case it is a serious charge with the real potential for jail time. You should not post anything else about the case on the internet and should contact a criminal lawyer.
