Anyone who is accused of breaking the law can face criminal charges. This is true even if someone knows the law. For people who carry a firearm, knowing all the laws pertaining to firearms can be difficult. This can mean that you might face criminal charges for doing something you didn’t realize was wrong.
Think about our blog post last week. We discussed a sheriff who was facing weapons charges because of an incident involving him at a tavern with a firearm. His case shows that even people who are legally able to carry a firearm might not know all of the laws that pertain to firearms.
If you are facing weapons charges, you might be facing some very serious penalties. The exact penalties you are facing depends on the type of weapons charge you are facing, as well as the circumstances surrounding the incident. We can help you to go through the prosecution’s case against you to learn about the allegations against you and what evidence points to those allegations.
We can help you to learn about the options you have for your defense, no matter what weapons offense you are facing. These include illegal possession of ammunition, drug possession while carrying a weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon, use of a gun during the commission of a crime and unlawful discharge of a firearm.
In every case, we consider the unique points of your case. These points can help us to tailor a defense strategy so we can answer all of the important components in the prosecution’s case against you.
