Arrested for a Firearm Offense?
Representation from a Murrieta Criminal Attorney
If you were accused of violating any laws relating to the possession of a firearm, you need to find immediate legal counsel to assist with your defense. Unlawfully possessing a gun or rifle can result in you being sent to county jail, owing thousands of dollars in fines, and leave a misdemeanor or a felony conviction on your record. You could also be forced to give up the weapon and lose the right to own a firearm in the future.
Don't allow this to happen. Call the Law Office of Nic Cocis to find out how we can help keep the penalties off your record and preserve your rights!
Understanding California's Strict Gun Laws
California's gun and firearm laws are very strict, heavily enforced, and carefully regulated. It can be difficult to know what is permissible and what is not, as the laws can be confusing. That is why our firm is here to help you understand how to defend yourself against such charges.
- These are some of the most common firearm offenses include:
- Owning a weapon without a license
- Concealed carrying of a firearm
- Concealed carrying of a loaded firearm in a car
- Illegal use or discharge of a firearm
- Minor in possession of a firearm
- Felon in possession of a firearm
- Assault with a deadly firearm
- Illegal sale of a firearm
- Assault weapon possession
If you have had even a certain minor misdemeanor on your record, you can be penalized for owning a firearm. These are very serious crimes that could prevent you from advancing your future and meeting your prospective goals. As an example, if in the last 10 years you were convicted of simple battery, you cannot legally own or even possess a firearm.
As another example, if you are an immigrant seeking to gain citizenship, having a firearm offense on your record can prevent you from doing so and could even result in you being deported. You need to get in touch with a Murrieta criminal defense lawyer today to discuss your case!
