Weapons Crimes Defense

Though the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides us the right to bear arms, state and federal laws regulate how, when, and where they may be used, and by whom.  In certain circumstances, the manner in which a firearm or other weapon is used or handled may constitute a criminal violation.  In other circumstances, a person, because of who they are and whether they have had their weapons rights limited, can be in violation of the law simply by possessing a firearm.

In Louisiana, weapons charges include the illegal possession of a weapon, discharging a gun improperly, the use of a weapon while committing a crime or even selling a weapon in certain situations. Louisiana punishes these criminal offenses harshly, which can damage your criminal record. Depending on the crime, you can be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony and possibly face jail time, fines, probation and other harsh penalties. You will need a dedicated, hard-working New Orleans criminal defense attorney to defend you.
