Cleveland Weapons Charge Attorney

What Are Weapons Charges?

Weapon crimes come in a variety of forms on the state and federal level. On a state level, a firearm specification can be attached to virtually any type of crime. A weapon can add 1, 3, 5, 6, or 7 years on to what would normally be an offense require probation. The weapon itself may carry its own special charge and count. On the federal level, you could end up in federal prison for a significant amount of time depending on your specific situation.

Defense Lawyers for Those Facing Weapons Charges

As former prosecutors, we can tell you how seriously and aggressively, the government takes weapon crimes and the charges that come with them. Our clients face weapons charges in both state and federal Court.

Often, weapons charges come with other types of crimes:

There are really just two different types:

  • There are crimes for having weapons (ex: assault rifles)
  • Crimes for using a weapon during the commission of a crime

In state offenses, the use of a weapon can add years, and even decades, worth of prison time. For instance, if you are accused of drug trafficking cocaine but you have a firearm on you, the police can try to add on three additional years that are not probationable to your case. If you're accused of firing at someone from a vehicle, you could be looking at an additional 8 years. There are other scenarios but the time quickly adds up.
