    Pleading guilty when you know you are and, not wasting the Court's time will work in your favor. Most of the time it normally reduces the effect of your sentence. Hopefully, you will have a good holiday ( if you on are on bail) and reflect on your action, prepare for whatever sentence may be handed down to you. Please note that this conviction may have an impact on future travel, especially when applying for permission to enter the US and in some cases future employment. One other thing the firearm may be tested by ballistic means to see it was used in. previous crimes. Once again good move it takes a man to own up to his crime. I would like to remind our youths that crime does not pay.....well it does for some people or so it seems. Eventually, it will catch up with you..
