The job of a criminal defense firm is to advocate for the accused, protect the accused’s best interests, and make sure that the law enforcement and trial officials involved operate within the law. When you are facing weapons charges, the job is no different. At Blanchard & Thomas, we take criminal defense seriously – particularly your 2nd Amendment Rights.
There are 4 types of weapons charges in Texas, they generally consist of:
If you are arrested for one of the above reasons, you are likely facing misdemeanor or felony charges with varying penalties associated with the severity of your crime. Misdemeanor charges may result in fines up to $4,000 and jail time up to one year. Felony charges are punishable with 2-99 years in prison and fines up to $10,000 depending on the crime committed. If you are accused of using a weapon to commit another criminal offense, the penalties can increase dramatically.
Public knowledge typically associates guns with a weapon charge, but there are other items that may be considered weapons punishable by Texas law. The following are just a few:
Regardless of which weapon your charge involves, you are going to need the help of a strong defense team. The evidence in your case, the witness statements, and the weapon itself will play a huge factor in your case, as will the skill of your lawyer. A conviction tarnishes not only your criminal record but your life outside of your cell. Housing opportunities, career opportunities, and often your reputation will be affected negatively if convicted. Don’t risk it.
Carrying a weapon in Texas is a privilege that many residents exercise, but if you do not meet the requirements to carry, you are risking arrest, charges, and your freedom. Weapons charges are a serious matter warranting immediate action on the part of the accused. If you do not hire an attorney, you are risking facing the legal process alone, without the knowledge and experience that an attorney offers. Place your defense in the capable, experienced hands of defense attorneys at Blanchard & Thomas. Our team is dedicated to giving our clients a fair chance and we work hard to reach favorable results in every case.
