Without an assertive and skilled defense lawyer by their side, the person accused of a weapons offense may be trapped behind bars for weeks or months awaiting a trial date.
In most cases, gun and firearm charges have serious mandatory minimum jail sentences. This is especially true if the alleged offender uses or carries a firearm or other weapon during a crime. For instance a conviction for armed robbery, where a deadly weapon is involved, carries a minimum four-year jail sentence. In cases such as this, in which weapons like brass knuckles, knives, or blunt objects are used, it is much more difficult to obtain a reasonable bail amount.
Competent Criminal Defense of concealed weapon Charges
Carrying a concealed weapon or using a concealed weapon is illegal under Alberta concealed weapon laws. The majority of weapons charges fall into two categories:
- First, a person can be arrested and charged with a weapons offense that involves the simple act of carrying a weapon illegally.
- Secondly, a weapons offense occurs when an offender carries or uses a weapon while committing a crime. If the accused was using or carrying a weapon while committing a crime the potential charges that can be brought are much more serious.
