In Your Defense As You Face Weapons Charges
Your right to bear arms may not be the central question in your criminal charges involving guns or other types of weapons. Rather, you may now face weapons charges due to allegations of:
- Carrying a concealed firearm without a permit
- Discharging a firearm in public, discharging a firearm from or into a motor vehicle
- Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
- Possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime or felony.
At Goldman, Monaghan, Thakkar & Bettin, P.A., you will find a skilled defense attorney who is ready to fight for your rights and your future when you have been charged with any type of weapons charge.
Common Words About Weapons Charges: ‘Enhancement’ And ‘Aggravated’
A weapons charge in connection with another felony – such as a drug crime – can result in severe penalties, including years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. With a weapons charge to go along with other criminal charges, you may face an “enhancement” of the potential criminal penalties. The term for the crime in such cases includes the word “aggravated,” such as “aggravated burglary.”
Another type of weapons crime carries very high penalties: possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. If you already had a felony on your record when you were arrested for carrying or using a weapon, you may now be facing these very serious charges. You need the aggressive, skilled defense that our attorneys are ready to provide.
