Beverly Hills Weapons Charges Defense Attorney

Defending You from Harsh Punishment

One of the main factors that contribute to the high rate of weapons charges in Los Angeles and California proper is that it is very easy to obtain weapons without the proper documentation that makes them legal to possess in our state. Additionally, our judicial system handles these cases rather punitively because an illegal use or possession of a dangerous weapon is viewed as possibly destructive, violent crime, regardless of use.

No matter what your weapons charge pertains to, many of them can easily lead to felony charges and serious jail time without the help of a determined and experienced attorney.

Common Weapons Charges

While it may be possible to purchase or otherwise obtain weapons and firearms, there are strict policies in place in the state of California designed to allow you your right to bear arms while maintaining a safe public sphere. The most common weapons charges include but are not limited to:

  • Possession of a gun without a permit
  • Improper handling of a gun in a vehicle
  • Illegally selling firearms
  • Possession of an assault weapon
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon

Many of these charges can be either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the nature of the crime and related prior offenses. Misdemeanors could be as simple as a substantial but manageable fine, whereas a felony charge will more than likely require prison time – anywhere from 1 to 20 years.
