Understanding Gun & Weapon Offenses
In many cases, weapon charges are added on top of other offenses. If a weapon was used to commit another crime, such as theft or a drug offense, then this charge will often be added on to worsen the penalties for the defendant.
There are several ways you can be charged with a gun offense, including:
- Unlawful use of a weapon
- Unlawful sale of a weapon
- Reckless use of a weapon
- Unlawful possession of a weapon
In some cases, gun offenses are charged as federal crimes or felonies. Any gun charge is serious, but these charges will carry stricter penalties. Thankfully, you have the power to defend yourself from them.
We Can Fight for Your Rights
Many people charged with these offenses have questions about their rights. When it comes to weapon charges, your rights do matter, but the law can be difficult to interpret in these affairs. Without skilled legal representation, even justified self-defense can be labeled as a crime. The law is designed to protect your rights, but you’ll need someone with the knowledge and experience to apply it to your benefit.
