Gun Crimes And Other Criminal Charges

I have experience representing clients facing weapons charges and other criminal charges. Did you know that you can be charged with a gun crime if you merely possess a weapon during the commission of a different crime? This can lead to severe penalties that may include mandatory time in jail.

Using a weapon while committing a crime can result in additional criminal charges that carry serious penalties. Gun crimes often stem from other criminal offenses, like robbery or assault and battery. In Virginia, the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony can result in a mandatory three-year sentence if you fired the weapon.

Possession Can Result In Gun Charges For Convicted Felons

Convicted felons in Virginia lose their rights to purchase or possess a firearm. You can face serious penalties if you are caught possessing or trying to purchase a gun or firearm if you have been convicted of a felony, including mandatory minimum punishments. Individuals considered violent felons will be sentenced to a mandatory five years in prison if they are in possession of a firearm.

The serious nature of these offenses requires a lawyer who understands weapons laws and how possessing a gun can lead to additional weapons charges. I am a skilled gun rights attorney who will carefully review the charges against you and explore all options to find the best outcome in your case. I can also help restore your gun rights if you are eligible.
