Defense For Weapons Charges

Weapons charges can be very serious charges to face. For those who have been convicted of a felony previously, possession of a firearm can lead to state or federal criminal charges. In state court, you will be looking at a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 10 to 20 years. In either state or federal court, you will be facing severe penalties.

Weapons OffensesApart from the severity of the consequences that you can face as a felon in possession of a firearm, another remarkable aspect is the ease with which such a charge can be applied to you. If the police can in any way make a convincing case that you had a gun in your possession, you will be charged. The gun may simply have been in the same house or vehicle as you were in to qualify as being in your possession. Ownership of a firearm is irrelevant. Someone else may own the weapon, but if you are in possession, you may be charged. Possession includes constructive possession, which means any firearm which is in your care, custody or control.

With 30 years of courtroom experience to guide our defense of your case, we can construct effective legal strategies that are designed to create the best possible results for you.

Depending on where you are charged, you may be indicted in federal court, rather than state court.
