Los Angeles Weapons Charges Attorney
About Weapons Charges
Within the last few years, law enforcement has been getting tougher and tougher on perpetrators of weapons crimes and misdemeanors. In the next few years, these laws and the enforcement of those laws are only going to get tougher. If you have been implicated in any crime involving a weapon you should contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney before it is too late. Weapons charges range from the extreme, such as assault with a deadly weapon, to the minimal possession of a deadly weapon or firearm.
The definition of a weapon can range from firearms to swords. Even blunt objects such as baseball bats can be labeled weapons when placed in a certain situation. The penalties for these offenses can be harsh and when combined with other charges they have the possibility to add years and years of jail time to your sentence. For example, brandishing a firearm while committing a crime can add up to 20 years of jail time onto your sentence. With this in mind it is incredibly important to seek out the advice and guidance of a knowledgeable and experienced defense attorney.
