Possession Of A Firearm By A Convicted Felon
In any weapons offense, numerous factors must be considered, including:
- Do you have a prior offense on your record?
- Was the weapon used in the commission of a crime such as burglary?
- Were you in possession of an illegal firearm?
- Was the weapon used in an assault?
- Does the charge involve the purchase or sale of an illegal firearm?
Many people equate the term weapon with a gun, but the definition is more far-reaching than that. Weapons can include guns, knives, brass knuckles or any other object used with the intent to cause bodily harm.
Additionally, your attorney must keep you apprised of the possible penalties. Whether you are facing felony or misdemeanor charges can have a dramatic impact on your future. Do not hesitate to contact our office if you have been arrested or charged with a gun crime.
