convictions can carry severe sentences, particularly when defendants have a criminal
record and/or the weapons charge is coupled with other criminal charges, such
as home invasion or robbery. In many cases, weapons charges carry mandatory prison
sentences, and those convicted may also face permanent marks on their record,
along with heavy fines and community service time.
It's important that those
who have been charged with a weapons crime consult with an experienced criminal
attorney at The Schwendeman Law Firm to learn more about their legal rights. Mr.
Schwendeman is dedicated to aggressively defending our clients' rights in any
necessary legal proceedings, including (not limited to):
and bail hearings
- sentencing proceedings
- probation violation proceedings
of Weapons Charges
Weapons charges in a particular case will vary according
to the details of the event and whether anyone was injured or killed as a result
of the alleged weapons violation(s). Keep in mind that since the terrorist attacks
on September 11th, the term weapon in these offenses can apply to a wide variety
of weapons not previously considered "deadly" including knives, switchblades,
razors and broken bottles, in addition to firearms.
