“Brian Lijewski did at one time have a colorful past. He paid for that past. He was charged,” said Phil DiLucente, the defense attorney. “A known felon is not supposed to have a gun in the home. We are going to fight that in another forum.”

Lijewski is facing three counts of reckless endangerment of another person and three counts of simple assault.
