Carrying Concealed Weapon Defense
Common defenses for CCW include that you were in a place that you were legally allowed to carry a pistol. You are licensed to carry a pistol. The pistol was being transported in a locked case and unloaded. If you were in a vehicle and you knew there was a gun in the car but it wasn’t yours then you have a defense.
If you meet any of these defenses then you MUST be found not guilty.
Additionally, if the police came into contact with you illegally or patted you down illegally and that illegal conduct led to finding the gun then that case should be dismissed.
Carrying a Concealed Weapon
In any criminal case the prosecutor must prove the elements of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, you never have to prove anything.
The prosecutor would have to show that you knowingly carried a pistol; it cannot be by accident.
The prosecutor also has to show that this pistol was concealed on you. A pistol is considered concealed if those who come into contact with you cannot easily see it.
If you are charged with CCW in a car then the prosecutor would have to prove that you knew it was in there and that you took part in hiding it.
Remember, if even one element of a crime is not proven then you are not guilty.
