In 2008, Attorney Bryan Hoss represented a young man who was a convicted felon. Our client was found inside a house that contained more than 40 firearms, including an AK-47. He was accused of a federal weapons offense for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Our attorney was able to build a defense case showing that these charges were not appropriate. Following a jury trial, the young man was acquitted of all counts. After months in custody, he walked out of the back of the courtroom.
