Gun Crime Charges in New York City
Charged with a weapon-related crime?
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
3.5 years in jail.
Don't take chances with your case.
