Weapons Crimes Span A Broad Range Of Offenses
“My weapons crime experience includes defending a client from Chicago who was charged with felony assault for allegedly knifing a man in a downtown bar. He faced a presumptive prison term, but after a protracted legal battle and with trial appearing imminent, we settled the case with the result that the client was not a lifelong convicted felon. Instead, he received service of local jail time with work release in his home state.” – Attorney Leunig
Carrying A Weapon Can Increase Penalties For Other Crimes
Weapons charges can include:
- Unlawful discharge
- Violating concealed carry law
- No license/permit
- Felon in possession
- Fleeing a police officer with a weapon
- Assault with a dangerous weapon
- Aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery
When a weapon is found during the commission of another crime, you will face more severe charges and penalties. You don’t have to use the weapon in the crime; just having it on you is enough. For example, you can be charged with first-degree robbery if you have a weapon on you during the offense. If you are convicted, you can face penalties of up to 20 years in prison and up to $35,000 in fines.
