Gun Crime Charges in New York City

Charged with a weapon-related crime?

Weapon Crimes

There are so many different types of weapons charges that you could possibly face in New York. For example, even if you are holding an item that is not normally used as a weapon (for example, a cooking utensil or walking stick) in a manner that appears threatening or if you use such item as a weapon, you could be facing weapons charges.

Of course, the more deadly the weapon that you use, the more severe the charges could be. If you are found in possession of a firearm and you don’t have the proper license, you could be facing a felony charge. If you have an unlicensed, loaded gun outside of your place of business or your place of residence, you could be forced to spend a minimum of 3.5 years in jail.

Don't take chances with your case. Contact our NYC criminal defense lawyer for legal help anywhere in Westchester, Bronx, Manhattan, Scarsdale or a surrounding area.
