Expert Representation for Cases Involving Weapons Charges
Weapons charges and offenses are increasingly becoming a focal point for law enforcement across the nation. The scrutiny is also apparent in Maryland. The state’s laws clearly define who may possess, carry, and use weapons. Weapons charges can vary in severity from misdemeanors to felonies, and may result in long-term punishments for those convicted. If you are charged with a weapons offense, do not hesitate to contact the Law Office of Peter S. O’Neill. Call today for a consultation.
Weapons Charges Carry Significant Consequences
Legislators have enacted weapons laws in Maryland in an effort to put an end to gun violence. Because the ramifications of gun and weapon violence are so dire, weapons regulations are strict and consequences are severe. Persons convicted of weapon offenses may serve prison time, are subject to hefty fines, and might encounter difficulties when seeking future housing or employment. Thousands of individuals are arrested for weapons crimes annually, and the court system rarely exercises leniency – even for first-time offenders. With that in mind, seek legal assistance from a criminal attorney who specializes in weapons charges. Mr. O’Neill will argue on your behalf in cases involving a wide variety of weapons charges.
