Law enforcement has recently increased their focus on finding those who have illegal weapons and those who have failed to correctly register a firearm. The state of New York has strict laws about the use and possession of weapons and even the most minor slipups can result in harsh penalties. A Rockland County criminal defense lawyer from my law firm can help you if you have been charged with any kind of weapons crime. I can provide you with experienced legal representation for your upcoming trial.
A weapon charge can include any of the following:
These are just some of the weapons violations that can result in an arrest and possible felony charges. If a weapon was used in a violent crime, your penalties will be enhanced. Those convicted of a weapons crime may face extended prison sentences, heavy fines, license suspension and other ramifications. Each case is different and requires a thorough investigation of every detail and piece of evidence. My law firm will review your case and its details to determine the best course of action of you. We can explore every option available including illegal search and seizure to determine if the arresting officer violated your rights. Any failure to protect your rights or violations of search and seizure could result in dismissed charges. I will evaluate every aspect of the evidence to determine the best way to help you defend against the charges.
