Fresno Weapons Crime Lawyer
Skilled Defense from a Fresno Criminal Attorney
In the state of California, there are very strict laws and regulations about the possession and sale of firearms and weapons. If you purchase a firearm, you are expected to follow these rules to the letter. Law enforcement and federal agencies take firearm and weapon crimes very seriously, which means you could be facing serious penalties if you are convicted. Our Fresno criminal defense lawyer at The Law Office of Brian C. Andritch can defend you aggressively if you have been arrested for a weapons charge.
A few of the most common weapon charges include:
- Carrying a weapon with no license
- Possessing a loaded weapon
- Possessing a concealed weapon
- Unlawfully selling a weapon
- Possessing an illegal weapon
- Possessing a weapon (as a convicted felon)
- Trafficking weapons
Penalties for Weapons Charges
Each weapon charge carries its own penalties, largely depending on the circumstances of the alleged offense. Carrying a concealed weapon or violating an ordinance such as bringing the weapon onto school grounds could lead to a very serious felony charge. Weapons offenses can carry heavy prison sentences, large fines, and a permanent criminal record if you are convicted. If you are convicted of a felony, you will no longer be able to legally carry a firearm.
