Weapons Offenses Are Taken Seriously
Weapons charges can create unexpected difficulties for people. First, many people who are charged with a weapons violation, perhaps for violating the concealed carry rules, may not have even realized they are violating the law until they have been arrested. Second, many people fail to realize that certain weapons charges carry minimum mandatory sentences. It is all too easy for someone to be facing jail time when he or she was not even aware he or she was committing a crime.
I defend people against all weapons-related charges, including:
- Felon in possession
- Unlawful use of a weapon
- Violation of concealed carry rules
- Unlawful discharge
- Brandishing a weapon
- Armed criminal action
