Firearm charges are some of the most serious a defendant can face. Significant minimum sentencing guidelines exist for those found guilty of a firearm offense:
*If you commit a crime and have a gun in your possession you are facing a 10 year minimum mandatory sentence.
*If you discharge a firearm during the course of committing a crime you are looking at a 20 year minimum sentence.
*If you shoot someone during the course of committing a crime and are found guilty you will be sitting in a prison cell for a minimum of 25 years.
*If any of these circumstances fit your case you should urgently seek the help of an expert criminal defense attorney who may be able to help you in your defense of these serious charges.
Charged with carrying a concealed weapon?
Even if you were not committing any crime, just illegally possessing a firearm can lead to severe penalties. Illegally carrying a concealed weapon is considered a third degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison and up to a $5000 fine.
If you have been charged with a firearm offense it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as early as possible.
