Firearm Offense Lawyer in LA
Los Angeles Firearm Offense Attorney
If you are a felon, a person convicted of certain misdemeanor offenses, a person who is addicted to narcotics, a person who suffers from mental illness, or a person who is a minor and you are in possession of a firearm, you should not be in possession of a firearm.
There are a number of California gun laws that prohibit carrying firearms under certain circumstances. If you are founds in possession of a firearm and you are in one of the above mentioned categories you face prosecution under the firearms law that can be quite complicated. Your gun rights may be revoked for up to 10 years.
Carrying a firearm can be serious, but illegally using a gun is even more serious and can result in time in prison.
Each California gun law carries its own penalties. Some are charged as misdemeanors; some as felonies; and some are considered wobblers, meaning that it may be charged as misdemeanor or felony depending on the circumstances.
To determine the penalty to impose, Judges look to whether the offense charges is being charged as a misdemeanor or a felony; the type of firearm that was used; criminal history of defendant; and whether the firearm offense subjects the defendant to any California firearm sentencing enhancements (which can add anywhere between 1 to 10 years in prison in addition to sentence received for underlying felony). Also, any felony where you use a firearm will be considered a strike under the California Three Strikes Law.
