The eldest son of Melbourne gangland matriarch Roberta Williams won't fight charges he possessed a stolen pistol and trafficked methamphetamines.

Tye Stephens briefly appeared before the Sunshine Magistrates Court on Tuesday charged with 12 offences related to drugs, firearms, stolen goods, and dealing with $2380 suspected to be the proceeds of crime.

The 29-year-old plans to plead guilty at his next court appearance in August, the court heard.

Stephens has been in custody since he was charged on May 28 and will remain in custody until his plea hearing.

Police allege Stephens was in possession of a stolen Colt .45 calibre pistol that had its serial number removed, and possessed ammunition without a licence on May 28.

He was also charged with possessing and trafficking methamphetamine and holding stolen goods, including computers and mobile phones, also on May 28 in Melton.

Roberta Williams, the ex-wife of slain gangland boss Carl Williams, was not in court on Tuesday for her son's appearance.

Stephens will return to court on August 18.
