What Circumstances Can Result In Felony Charges?
A number of circumstances can result in felony criminal charges in connection with firearms. Felony firearm possession charges can involve other criminal charges, such as theft, robbery or sexual assault. Possession of a firearm while committing one of these crimes can lead to significantly enhanced criminal penalties.
In the case of someone who was previously convicted of a felony, simply possessing any gun means that he or she is considered a felon in possession of a firearm. Consecutive offenses carry extra years in prison as penalties, in addition to fines and other negative consequences of a felony conviction.
