Weapons charges are unique and complicated

Weapons crimes are obviously very serious matters that need to be attended to by the person who is accused of such an offense. But what many people may not realize is that people who are accused of weapons crimes aren't always the brutes you may think they are. Just because someone is accused of a crime involving a weapon doesn't mean the individual was using a weapon, nor does it mean he or she intended to use the weapon.

Sometimes, the person just had a weapon on them, and when they were involved in an altercation or criminal activity, the weapons crime was attached to the entire case. Simply by having a weapon on you makes it more likely that you will be hit with a weapon crime, even if you have no intent of using it and even if you don't draw your weapon.

As you can imagine, weapons crimes can be a little complex as this example shows. But the consequences that come along with weapons crimes have the ability to derail a person's life for a very long time. Anyone who is accused of committing a crime with a weapon, regardless of the circumstances, needs to consult with a criminal defense attorney immediately.
