NYC Gun Crimes Lawyers

It is a serious offense to be changed with a gun crime in New York state. New York actually has some of the toughest statues in place in the country when it relates to guns, with penalties that will change your life for the worse if convicted. Gun crime laws today actually encompass a wide variety of elements in New York state. Many people associate such a law with the actual illegal possession of a gun, but there is much more to it than this. A charge of this nature can be rather complex, which is why you will want to contact Criminal Lawyers NYC at your first available opportunity in order to secure representation.

The Crime Explained

Being charged with a gun crime can result in many things happening to you all at once. It can lessen the possibility that you will ever be able to legally carry a gun in New York at some point in the future. If you are convicted, you are looking at almost certain jail time and possibly severe financial penalties. Because there are a number of different circumstances that can result in a person being charged with a gun crime, there is a lot of ground to cover. For example, you could be charged with this crime if you are believed to have sold a gun in an illegal fashion. You can also be charged with a gun crime if you are found to be in possession of a gun with having legal permission.

Gun crime charges vary in severity. If you are charged with this crime while being involved in a drug transaction, for example, the penalties will be more severe. There are also special situations that can result in a gun crime if you are found to be brandishing a weapon in a dangerous fashion. Examples of such weapons include knives, stun guns, and certain types of switchblades. However, for such a charge to stick it will need to proven that you believed these weapons were going to be used to commit a crime. If so, that will determine that specific degree of the charge that is levied.

Penalties That Are Possible

As you can probably imagine, the penalties for a gun conviction in New York can be rather severe. It will, of course, depend on the specific charge that you are facing. Charges are possible anywhere from a Class A Misdemeanor to a Class B felony. The prosecutor in any given case will take a wide angle view of a variety of factors before deciding on the specific charge. Criminal history is one factor, as you may receive a lesser charge if this is your first offense. Keep in mind, however, that even a conviction of a Class A Misdemeanor can result in a prison sentence of up to one year.

There are more serious charges to be levied if it is believed that you used a weapon while committing another crime. If this is the case, New York law allows for a prison sentence of up to twenty-five years to be imposed if convicted. If you were to actually have a criminal history, the prosecutors may very well look for the harshest sentence possible under law to be imposed. This is why you will need one of our professional and experienced lawyers working on your behalf.

If you have been charged with a gun crime in New York, contact our office today for a consultation. It is helpful to get started working on your defense right away.
