Under state law, there are exceptionally heavy punishments imposed for crimes involving weapons, including decades or life in prison in some cases. The skill with which your case is defended is extremely important. There are various serious charges that could be filed against any person who illegally uses a firearm or other weapon, including:
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Illegal purchase of a gun
- Illegally modifying a gun
- Illegally selling a gun
- Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
A felony charge could be filed against you for weapons other than firearms, including knives or explosives or explosive devices or the components to create an explosive device.
Possible Penalties for Weapon Convictions
The penalties that could be imposed upon any person convicted of a weapons crime will vary, based upon the alleged violation. For example, if you are accused of the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony crime, you could face up to 10 years in state prison. For the discharge of the firearm in the commission of a felony, you could face 20 years in prison. If another person was shot, no matter how serious or minor the injury, you will face 25 years to life.
