Weapons Charges can Have Severe Consequences; Protect Your Future with the Help of an Experienced Weapons Defense Lawyer
Illegal gun possession, under normal circumstances, is considered a Class A misdemeanor. This means that you may receive a maximum fine of $4000 and up to a year in jail. However, under certain circumstances you may receive higher charges. For example, illegally possessing a weapon at a place serving alcohol would be a third-degree felony, resulting in a maximum fine of $10,000 and up to 10 years in jail.
There are several types of weapons that are illegal to possess under any circumstances. These include switchblades, brass knuckles, and machine guns. Illegally possessing a switchblade or brass knuckles is a Class A misdemeanor; possessing any other illegal weapon is a third-degree felony.
Get the Guidance You Need to Make the Right Decisions and Fight Your Case
Weapon laws can often be somewhat confusing for those unfamiliar with them. For example, under normal circumstances you can’t carry a gun without a permit; however, you are still allowed to carry a weapon to transport it. This creates a gray area in the law which can result in you receiving punishment for something that wasn’t actually illegal.
If you are facing charges for illegal gun possession, the first thing you should plan on doing is finding an experienced gun possession lawyer. Acting on your own may end up incriminating you further, even if you’re innocent. A weapons defense attorney will be able to look at your situation and determine how they can handle your defense. If you would be better off pursuing a different course of action, they can advise and guide you throughout that process.
