What if I Sell a Handgun to a Person under Disability?

I live in Ohio and sold a handgun to my cousin and her boyfriend not realizing they are both under disability. He is facing criminal charges and the gun was seized. Will I get in trouble for this?

Answer:  You might.  It depends if the cousin and boyfriend tell the Police where they got the gun.   You may not  "recklessly sell, lend, give, or furnish any firearm to any person who may not possess a firearm, or who is under the influence of alcohol or any drug of abuse."  However, if you did not know, you may have a defense if charged.  Don't make any statements to police or anyone about this and retain a lawyer if you can.
