Macomb County Weapon Offenses Lawyer
Get The Defense You Need For Weapon Offenses
In Michigan, any charge involving firearms or weapons can substantially affect your criminal case, because some weapons offenses are crimes in and of themselves, while others work as allegations or enhancements to already existing charges. Understand that a misdemeanor weapons charge can be a serious legal problem. Moreover, having a weapon during the commission of another offense substantially increases the severity of the charge and potential punishment.
Here are some common firearm or weapon charges.
- Felony firearm possession
- Carrying an unlicensed firearm
- Carrying a concealed weapon
- Unlawful discharge of a firearm
- Unlawful sale of a weapon;
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Possession of illegal firearms or accessories.
This list is by no means complete.
There are two broad categories of crimes involving firearms and other weapons:
- Those involving criminal intent.
- Those that do not.
Most firearms and weapons crimes do not require a prosecutor to prove that you were acting with criminal intent—mere possession under certain circumstances is sufficient grounds for a conviction.
