About Weapon Charges

Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney

If a person possesses an illegal weapon or uses an illegal weapon during the commission of a crime, he/she may face weapon charges. In the state of California, it is illegal for people to possess certain weapons, especially during the commission of a crime. Illegal weapons include: firearms, knives, explosive devices, and shocking devices.

Common weapon charges include:

  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Illegal firearm possession
  • Armed robbery
  • Possession of a concealed weapon
  • Selling illegal firearms

If you have been charged with a weapon related offense, it is always in your best interest to speak with a qualified Orange County criminal defense attorney. An attorney can review your case, inform you of your rights, and provide you with guidance throughout the legal process. In some cases, your attorney may be able to negotiate with state prosecutors to have your weapon charges reduced or dismissed.

Weapon Charges & Consequences

The legal penalties for a weapon offense conviction will depend upon several factors, such as: the defendant's prior criminal history, the type of weapon in the defendant's possession, if the defendant used the weapon during the commission of a crime, and if the defendant used to the weapon to cause another person bodily harm. If a person is convicted of a weapon offense, he/she may be subject to jail time, fines, community service, probation, and legal fees. Furthermore, once a person is convicted of a weapon offense, he/she will have a negative mark on his/her criminal record, which may make it difficult for the person to obtain future employment, housing, and education opportunities.
