Q: What's the max jail time for poss. of ammunition?

My husband found some bullets on his way to the post office but was pulled over on his bike for not stopping at a stop sign minutes after he found them. Because he is an ex-con, he was arrested and charged with possession of ammunition. The Public Pretender he has is not trying to help him at all.

A: NEED MORE INFO

IT WOULD BE HARD FOR ANY LAWYER TO SELL THAT HE (A FELON) JUST FOUND THE BULLETS..............MINUTES B/F STOP.......NOT VERY LIKELY..............THOUGH POSSIBLE.

EVERY JUDGE SENTENCES DIFFERENTLY BASED ON THE FACTS. THE CURRENT LAWYER IS IN THE BEST POSITION TO SHARE THAT INFO

SOMETIMES A CLIENT INTERPRETS A PD AS NOT BEING HELPFUL WHEN S/HE IS TRY TO SAVE YOU FROM GOING TO TRIAL ON A CASE THAT IS UNLIKELY TO BE WON AND THUS HAVE THE CLIENT SUFFER A MORE SEVERE SENTENCE.
