Concealed Weapon, Firearm, and Assault with a Deadly Weapon
The defence team at Gunn Law Group will immediately start working on your case, if you or someone you know has been arrested and charged with a weapons offence. Without an assertive and skilled defence lawyer by their side, a person accused of a weapons offence may be in custody for weeks or months awaiting a trial date.
In most cases, gun and firearm charges have serious mandatory minimum jail sentences. This is especially true if the alleged offender uses or carries a firearm or other weapon during a crime. For instance a conviction for armed robbery, where a firearm is involved, carries a minimum four-year jail sentence. In cases in which weapons like brass knuckles, knives, or blunt objects are used, the possible jail sentence can be significant.
Competent Criminal Defence of concealed weapon Charges
Carrying a concealed weapon or using a concealed weapon is illegal. The majority of weapons charges fall into two categories:
- A person can be arrested and charged with a weapons offence that involves the simple act of carrying a weapon illegally.
- A weapons offence occurs when an offender carries or uses a weapon while committing a different crime. If the accused was using or carrying a weapon while committing a crime the potential charges that can be brought and the penalties on conviction are much more serious.
