We Know How Police and Prosecutors Handle These Cases
The police often charge people with criminal use of a firearm when they suspect them of a weapons crime, but don’t have enough good evidence to get a conviction. When another crime is charged, weapons offenses are often added so that the accused faces more serious consequences.
If you are on parole, one of the things that is strictly prohibited is possessing a weapon. Even if you were only hunting or target shooting, you could face serious charges.
These weapons offenses aren’t limited to guns. Brass knuckles, nunchuks, throwing stars, switchblades and many knives are all illegal. Many of the weapons crimes we handle occurred in the spur of the moment. Our clients are people who were accused of violence in bar fights or in domestic violence situations at home. Some are accused of gang assault or other gang-related violence crimes.
Orange County criminal defense lawyer Benjamin Greenwald recognizes that people who are charged with weapons violations frequently face multiple charges — everything from unlawful possession of a firearm to assault with a deadly weapon or illegal manufacture or transporting of firearms. He is prepared to aggressively defend you against all criminal charges.
