Will possession of a weapon make my crime more serious?


Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

The answer is very simple. Yes, possession of a fire arm, either on your person or in close proximity during a commission of a crime will make the crime and crimes charge much more serious and can severely enhance the penalties that you can face. Using a weapon or having possession of a weapon during a commission of a crime always makes matters much, much, much worse. It’s essential that you have an experienced defense lawyer to represent you if you’re charged with possession of a fire arm during the commission of a felony, which is almost always a separate offense in addition to the actual offense and very often, as I have seen through the years, even if you have a fire arm in the trunk of your car, and let’s say a crime is committed in the main park, or if you have a gun in your bedroom and a crime is committed in your main part of your house, or in a boat or whatever, you get charged with having possession of a fire arm during commission of a felony. When really, the fire arm was there, but you really didn’t use it in furtherance of the felony in any way. So it’s critically important that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer to represent you to hopefully get those charges thrown out. If not, you’ll pay the price for it. So call us. We can help you.
