Weapons offenses involve the balancing of a citizen's right to bear arms versus society's interest in deterring violence. As such, whether a weapon, such as a gun or a knife, was illegally possessed often depends on where and how it was possessed. Additionally, all weapons crimes require the prosecution to prove that a person knowingly possessed the item involved. Examples of illegal weapons vary from guns and knives to ordinary household items with an otherwise lawful use. Weapons offenses can be charged as either felonies or misdemeanors.

• Misdemeanor Jail Time (Up to 1 Year)

Criminal Defense Lawyer for Possession of Illegal Weapons & Firearms Charges
Selecting an attorney is often a difficult process. Be sure to discuss with whomever you choose, any and all viable defenses. Should fighting your case at trial not be the best option, talk to your attorney about the possibility of an alternative sentence, such as community service, electronic home monitoring or work furlough. A plea bargain can often be negotiated to reduce fines or allow for an extended payment period.
