Weapons Charges Require A Strong Legal Defense
If you have been convicted of a felony in Michigan, you are not allowed to carry a gun. If you are arrested as a previous offender, or felon in possession of a firearm, you are facing serious consequences. You will be charged with the firearm possession charge as well as the other criminal charge. You will automatically have to serve a mandatory two years for the felon in possession, and then the penalty for the other crime begins only after this.
At David G. Moore, Attorney at Law, we are equipped to protect your rights when you are facing weapons charges. If you have been convicted of a felony and have now been arrested on weapons charges, you need to put forth a strong defense. Call 269-216-4573 to get answers to your questions.
Examining The Evidence To Build A Defense
Our work will involve looking at:
- Were your constitutional rights violated at any point along the way toward your arrest or even after your arrest?
- Was there a witness against you who made false allegations?
- Was there an issue of an improper search and seizure?
- Were there mitigating circumstances that brought you to be carrying a weapon?
- Did you unknowingly violate the law banning felons from possession of firearms?
Skilled Handling Of All Weapons Charges
There are numerous ways to be charged with weapons offenses. Possessing a firearm without proper licensure is a crime in itself. Even if you do have a license to possess a firearm, it is illegal to carry a weapon that is concealed (CCW) without obtaining a concealed carry permit, as is possessing a firearm after being convicted of certain felony crimes. Of course assault with a deadly weapon is also a serious crime.
