The legal issues are complex, especially since Virginia criminal laws on weapons charges are broad in terms of definitions and what constitutes an offense. Plus, with some crimes, you are not just facing jail time and fines for a conviction. If found guilty, there are collateral consequences and implications for your civil rights.
A solid defense is critical if you were arrested for weapons charges, and Hampton Injury Law PLC has the experience and skills to protect your rights. The prosecutor has a heavy burden to gain a conviction, so we help our clients develop a strategy to expose weaknesses. Please contact our office to schedule a case evaluation with a Virginia weapon charges attorney. Read on for some background information related to weapons charges.
As with other criminal offenses, you might gain a better understanding of these cases by learning how they are categorized. Multiple factors impact the nature of the offense and specific charges.
Many weapons cases involve misdemeanor charges, in which the punishment could include up to a year in jail for a Class 1 misdemeanor. For a felony weapons offense, the minimum prison sentence is one year and increases based on the crime. A Class 4 felony conviction is punishable by 2 to 20 years of incarceration.
