Avoid Harsh Penalties If Possible
Firearms violations are unique in that they may incur punishments that other types of crimes do not. Besides facing jail time or probation, a person who is convicted of a weapons offense may confront additional penalties that are determined by state and federal law. These penalties include:
- Fines and restitution
- Mandatory sentencing
- Restitution payments to victims
- Loss of one’s Second Amendment right to possess a firearm
Although the United States Constitution protects individuals’ rights to keep and bear arms, the courts have upheld some limitations that may impact when and where you can carry a gun.
Your defense attorney at Daniel & Halstead can help ensure that these limitations were not unfairly or inappropriately applied in your case.
