Phoenix Weapons Charges Attorney

Weapons Charges Lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona

If you have weapons charges against you in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale or Tempe, you need a lawyer who is familiar with state weapons regulations. In the last 20 years, gun control legislation has changed many of the legal requirements pertaining to gun owners and authorized gun dealers. Federal initiatives to target gun owners can sometimes result in entrapment and harassment of gun owners and gun dealers. If you have been accused of illegally possessing a firearm, illegally modifying a firearm, or violating parole or probation by having a firearm in your possession, you will need the legal expertise of a Phoenix criminal defense attorney who can create an effective defense for your case.

Arizona weapons offense laws are extremely complicated and can result in felony or misdemeanor charges, which need to be handled by an experienced criminal defense attorney. Even if you have no previous record and are not a prohibited possessor, charges can still be filed against you. If you possess certain rifles and shotguns that have barrels shortened beyond the minimum barrel length, or other illegal weapons such as automatic machine guns and nunchucks, you could be found guilty of a weapons charge.

Phoenix Criminal Defense Attorney: Weapons Offenses

A Phoenix based criminal defense lawyer, Joshua S. Davidson has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to weapons charges. If you have previously been convicted of a felony, are on probation, or have been convicted of certain domestic violence offenses, your right to legally possess a gun or other weapon could be stripped from you. Under Arizona law, such persons are considered to be prohibited possessors.

Possession of a gun by a prohibited possessor is a class 4 felony offense in Arizona. Because the person charged with being a prohibited possessor typically has at least one prior felony conviction, any additional conviction is subject to Arizona's mandatory sentencing laws for repeat offenders, requiring a prison sentence for second and subsequent felony convictions.

Due to the complicated nature of Arizona weapons laws, you need to have an experienced trial attorney to defend your legal rights. To avoid a drastic weapons charge conviction, contact our law firm to receive legal advice pertaining to your weapons offense in Phoenix, Glendale, Scottsdale, or Tempe.
