Lawyer wants evidence suppressed in gun case

Posted: Updated:
OXFORD -

A lawyer has asked a federal judge to throw out evidence in a north Mississippi gun case.
   
Charles Williams was a passenger in a car in December 2011 when the vehicle encountered a check point set up by the Mississippi Highway Patrol and Nettleton Police Department.
   
Court records say the driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI. A search of the vehicle turned up a gun in the trunk.
   
Williams was indicted in November on charges of being a felon in possession of a gun and possessing a gun with a destroyed serial number.
   
Williams' lawyer filed a motion in U.S. District Court in Oxford to suppress the evidence.
   
Attorney Nicole Clinkscales argues that the check point was improper and so was the search of the vehicle.
