People v. Gordon, No. B209075

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on October 05, 2009 12:55 PM

Defendant's conviction is reversed as collateral estoppel barred the court from convicting defendant of being a felon in possession of a firearm after the jury acquitted him on the charges during which the firearm possession allegedly occurred. Defendant's claim that he was not properly advised of the rights he was waiving is rejected as he knowingly and voluntarily waived his rights to jury trial on the gun possession charge.
