How strong is my case if everything if all the evidence is alleged?

I'm being charged with carrying a firearm as a career criminal (prior felony). I was not carrying a firearm. There was not a firearm even in the vehicle. The arresting officer said I stopped too far in front of a stop sign and flashed his lights on after I passed him. I then took a couple turns before stopping. He then alleged that my passenger tossed an object out of the window about 150 yards back. They searched the area and found a 9mm pistol. So basically he allegedly saw a black gun come out of a moving car turning a corner at 35 mph at 2AM. No fingerprints were found or DNA, just scratches that they say are from the pistol being thrown from a moving car. I need help. I think my lawyer isn't trying his best even though I paid him his fee. Do I have a case? Is it strong or weak?

    The police are trying to frame you, and just happen to find a gun where they alleges you threw it? Are you for real? That story sucks. So, your real story is that the police officer is framing you. The police officer has a throw down gun that he claims he found in the grass. Why is the officer doing all of this against you? Are you O.J Simpson. Both of your stories suck.

    They saw the passenger throw the gun out. It sounds like it was not yours and they have to prove that you knew about the gun. This is a defense that you did not know the passenger had a gun.

    Your question requires an attorney consultation. It is not a simple question that can be answered on this type of forum. There are many factors that would need to be considered and evaluated. The short answer is: If they found a gun in the area where the police say they saw something being thrown from the car, that is pretty strong evidence against you.

    No one on here is going to second guess your lawyer, because your lawyer knows far more about the case and where the case will be heard than we do. That said, it sounds like you have some reasonable defense arguments. I would encourage you to work with your lawyer. If your lawyer doesn't think he can do better than what has happened so far, ask why. He may have a very good explanation. Then again, he might not.

    You have an attorney who is aware of all the facts. I only know what you told me. However, based upon what you have said, I believe the State has a pretty good case against you.
