Guns & Weapons Charges

Criminal Defense Lawyer in Long Beach

Guns and weapons charges can encompass a wide variety of weapons, including handguns, knives, explosives, and automatic weapons.  These charges are often added to other charges as an aggravating factor, in cases involving robbery, kidnapping, or assault.  When a gun is utilized in the committing of a crime, it can greatly enhance the penalties levied in the event of a conviction, as what once may have been a misdemeanor is now upgraded to felony status.  Penalties can include fines, probation, jail or prison time, and a possible banning from ever again being able to possess a firearm. 

A Long beach criminal defense attorney is available to provide you with legal representation if you have been arrested and charged with a gun or weapons-related offense.  With their help, your charges may be reduced, or even dismissed, allowing you to avoid possible jail time or other life-altering punishment.
