Weapon Charges & Consequences

The legal penalties for a weapon offense conviction will depend upon several factors, such as: the defendant’s prior criminal history, the type of weapon in the defendant’s possession, if the defendant used the weapon during the commission of a crime, and if the defendant used to the weapon to cause another person bodily harm. If a person is convicted of a weapon offense, he/she may be subject to jail time, fines, community service, probation, and legal fees.
