Charges Involving Guns And Other Weapons
In addition to federal gun laws, California has enacted some of the toughest restrictions on firearms compared to any other state. If you are facing weapons charges, many of your freedoms are on the line. The penalties for gun-related offenses can be harsh, and prosecutors will pursue them aggressively.
I founded The Law Office of Christopher A. Lamiero because I know how important it is to have an experienced and relentless defense attorney in your corner, especially when facing violations of any of the numerous weapons laws in California, including:
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Possessing illegal firearms
- Brandishing a weapon
- Selling firearms illegally
- Possessing a firearm as a felon
- Discharging a firearm from a vehicle or at an occupied dwelling
Building a defense against weapons charges begins with a thorough examination of the circumstances surrounding your arrest, for example, the methods police used to confiscate the weapon. With decades of experience in criminal law, I have a unique perspective that I can draw upon in building a case against the charges you face.
Other Weapons Crimes
Firearms are not the only weapons governed by restrictive laws. You may face charges for possessing silencers, sniper scopes and certain types of ammunition. Committing a crime with any kind of weapon, such as a dagger, knife, brass knuckles or explosives, can lead to enhanced penalties if you are convicted.
A conviction for a felony weapons charge can land you in a state prison. However, using a firearm during the commission of a crime can result in enhancements to your sentence, up to life in state prison, depending on the circumstances. This is not a situation you want to leave to chance. You need a strong advocate to fight for your freedom.
