Obtaining aggressive, skilled, and dedicated criminal attorney representation is extremely important, as a weapons or firearms conviction will bring about very serious penalties. The penalties you will face will depend on the type of crime you have committed. For example, if you had a gun or firearm in your possession during the commission of a crime, you could possibly face ten years in prison. Firing a gun during the commission of a crime can lead to 20 years in prison. If you actually shoot and injure or kill another person during the course of crime you will face 25 years to life in prison. These prison sentences are in addition to fines, probation, restitution to the victim, community service, and a mark on your permanent record. Furthermore, you can also lose your right to own, possess, or purchase a weapon in the future, and if you have a license to sell firearms, you could also lose your license.
Being charged with, arrested for or accused of any crime is not only stressful but has wide reaching consequences if your case is not resolved for the best outcome possible under the circumstances and evidence. Defense cases urgently requires an experienced attorney that you connect with personally, that understands your side and understands the law and the system to ensure your rights are fully preserved.
