We defend clients facing weapons charges.
Weapons charges refer to criminal offenses related to the use, possession, sale, or trafficking of firearms and weapons. Although the specific regulations and laws surrounding weapons charges can vary, the severity of the charges depend on factors such as the type of weapon involved, the circumstances of possession, and the intent of the person who has possession of the weapon.
One of the most common weapons charges is illegal possession. This type of charge involves possessing a weapon and not having the proper permits or licenses to do so based on local, state, or federal law. Other common weapons charges include unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a stolen weapon, illegal sale of a weapon, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
The penalties for weapons charges can range from probation and fines to imprisonment, depending on the nature and severity of the offense. The defendant’s criminal history can also come into play. Additionally, some jurisdictions have mandatory minimum sentences for certain weapons defenses.
