Jury Acquits on Felon in Possession of a Firearm Case

Kenton Circuit Court. The Commonwealth indicted Client with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm after a shotgun was located next to the bed in which Client had allegedly been sleeping. Elizabeth Selby aggressively and successfully litigated pretrial motions which limited evidence and testimony the Commonwealth was permitted to introduce. The Commonwealth was still permitted to introduce a surveillance video purporting to show Client with the gun. However, inconsistent testimony was revealed upon cross-examination of one of the primary investigating officers. After deliberation the jury returned a not guilty verdict.
