The use of a firearm in a crime can make the penalties that you face even harsher. As difficult as this is to think about, you must be realistic about the possible penalties if you are facing these charges. We know that you want to fight back against these charges. We are here to help you handle this.
Developing a defense strategy for a weapons charge is something that is very difficult to do. We need to look at each aspect of the case to determine your options. As we go through this, we can let you know what options you have so that you can make the decision.
Another thing that we need to consider is the status of the weapon. Were you a felon in possession of an illegal firearm? If so, you are looking at some very serious penalties. Were you carrying a gun legally registered to you? If so, you might face some harsh penalties, but they likely wouldn’t be as bad as if you were using an illegal gun.
We realize that you feel like your life is at stake. This is likely very true since you are facing incarceration for these charges. We don’t want you to take these charges lightly. Instead, you need to get started on your defense fast and work on getting things in order. These charges aren’t ones that can be handled with a defense that is thrown together right before the trial. We need to have time to investigate, plan and strategize before we face a jury that will decide your fate.
