Consequences of a Weapon- or Gun-Related Offense

Some of the most common forms of weapons charges that our firm handles include the possession of a firearm, use of a firearm, unlawful selling of a firearm, discharging of a firearm and brandishing a firearm. The charge of possession of a firearm can vary depending on the specific circumstances.

Depending on the type of weapon that is involved, the charge, and potential penalty, can vary. Possession of a firearm in an establishment that sells alcohol is a Class 4 felony, and possession of a loaded machine gun is a Class X felony. A conviction for a weapon offense can lead to serious penalties.
