Weapons charges can be serious and can lead to severe penalties. Whether your charges relate to explosive possessions, firearm offenses, knife possession, automated weapons, or any other type of weapon involved crime, when proven guilty, it may lead to consequences such as jail time, significant fines, and probation. In addition, the criminal record that results from a conviction for a weapon offense can have severe effects on your future possession of any form of firearms.
One step to take when facing a weapons charge is to hire a criminal defense lawyer. Although you are innocent until proven guilty, this does not change the fact that you have been charged with specific weapons offenses under the Criminal Code. Your first step should be to contact an experienced weapon charges defense lawyer who will understand what your potential sentence could be and how best to minimize or remove it.

Convicted felons, minors, and mentally challenged people are also not permitted to possess firearms under state laws.
