Weapon offenses carry harsh penalties

A weapon offense is nothing to take lightly. If you are convicted of this type of crime, you could find yourself facing a harsh penalty that changes your life forever.

If you are unfamiliar with the many types of gun offenses, here are some of the most common:

-- Possession of illegal weapons

-- Felon in possession of a weapon

-- Carrying a concealed weapon

-- Discharging or brandishing a weapon

-- Possession a weapon while under disability

Some of these charges only come into play on the federal level, while others are associated with state charges. Either way, it is a serious situation that deserves your full attention.

When it comes to penalties, consider some of these details:

-- Federal law states that causing death or injury with a firearm leads to a mandatory 25 year sentence.

-- Firing a weapon from a vehicle can add seven years to a prison sentence, in connection with another crime.

Due to the seriousness of weapon offenses, this is not the type of thing that you ignore. Instead, you need to fully understand the extent of your charges, including what could happen if you are convicted.

For many years, our attorneys have been assisting people who have been charged with state and federal weapon offenses. It doesn't matter what situation you are in, it is a good idea to obtain the assistance of an attorney as soon as possible.
