It is all too easy to find yourself on the wrong end of a weapons or guns charge. Many people may not realize they are breaking the law until it is too late.
If you have found yourself facing charges related to weapon or gun possession, we can help you build a defense that can protect you and help you secure the best possible outcome to your case.
Some of the types of charges we defend people against include:
- Carrying a loaded firearm
- Felon in possession
- Possession of a machine gun or sawed-off shotgun
Felon In Possession
If you have been convicted of certain felonies, you are not eligible to possess a firearm. Too often, people do not understand how the police will look at a situation. They may think that if they do not have the gun on their person that they have not broken the law. This is not the case.
The police can charge you for what is known as constructive possession. This may mean the gun is not on you, but is accessible to you. A gun in the trunk or in another room of the house can still count as possession. These rules apply not just to felon in possession charges, they apply to all weapons and gun cases.
