PostSubject: What Are The Charges for Possessing A Firearm?    Fri Nov 11, 2016 7:55 pm

The charges for possession of a firearm are usually based on whether the person holds a permit for it, if they are using it for an illegal purpose, if the weapon itself is illegal or if possession of the weapon by the person is not allowed. The charges can range from second degree felonies to fourth degree felonies. This could include a huge fine as well as a prison term in some cases.

Even though possession of a weapon illegally is considered to be a serious crime, there are a few ways in which a person can build a good defense and manage to get rid of these charges. For example, first time offenders may be excused for possessing the weapon if they have not caused any harm. In fact, the charges may even not be included in the criminal record. In certain other cases, if the police did not have a warrant to search the premises, they are not allowed to use any of the firearms as evidence. A good defense attorney can argue these facts in the court and manage to use them to your advantage.
