Common Gun and Firearm Offenses
If someone commits a crime of any kind while using a weapon, the punishment for the crime becomes much more severe. Even if the weapon is found in that person’s possession and was not used to commit the crime, the penalties still become more severe. There are also some instances where people are arrested for possession of a gun, even if that person is the rightful licensed owner and did not intend to commit a crime.
What Our Attorney Can Do For You
Lawyers do not just fight for you in the courtroom, they perform extensive investigations on behalf of their clients- searching for any information or factors that will benefit your case. An attorney can help prove if a weapon was falsely planted on you by someone else, that you had a legal right to have a gun on your person at the time, or if the police even had the right to search you for a weapon in the first place. There are things you can do to protect yourself, and you do not have to figure them out alone.
