Constructive possession tossed by jury
A jury acquitted a man on a possession of a silencer charge. It looks like he had one of the MPX style brakes:
Sees defense was he possessed muzzle breaks (sic) that reduce gun recoil, not silencers that muffle the sound of gunfire, Betras said.
A U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives expert testified that only a tube had to be placed over the devices to create silencers, but a defense expert witness contradicted that, Betras said.
