Fighting Your Weapon Charges in Houston

Houston Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

Federal weapon charges may encompass a number of different offenses, involving the possession, use, distribution and sale of firearms and other deadly weapons. In some cases, simply being in possession of a gun or other weapon will be considered unlawful because the offender is a convicted felon or does not have a permit. Other cases involve the use of a weapon in the commission of a crime, such as armed robbery or aggravated assault.

Weapon offenses that are classified as federal crimes are extremely serious. Federal gun crimes are most likely to be charged as felonies, and convictions of this kind may result in imprisonment for a minimum of 1 year, along with other serious penalties. A person convicted of a weapons offense may also face difficulty finding employment in the future and may also face limited opportunities in regard to housing and financing.
