Weapons Crimes Defending Rights. Fighting Injustice.

San Antonio Weapons Crimes Lawyer

Defense for Weapon Offenders in Texas

When facing weapons charges, understand that the charges vary in severity. Charges range from misdemeanors to felonies. If you are facing such charges, you should consider having a dedicated lawyer on your side to help you maximize your chances in court.

All types of weapons charges depend on the circumstances surrounding your specific arrest. I can thoroughly analyze the details of your arrest and help build a strong case for you.

Weapons Illegal to Possess in Texas

Even though Texas has a reputation for loose gun laws, it's still quite easy to be charged with a weapons crime if you are in possession of particularly dangerous and unnecessary weapons.

The list of prohibited weapons includes:

  • Explosives
  • Machine guns
  • Rifles with 16-inch-long barrels or smaller
  • Shotguns with 18-in-long barrels or smaller
  • Switchblade knives
  • Make-shift hand guns

Potential Charges, Penalties, and Sentences

The main concern for those facing criminal charges related to weapons possession is between misdemeanor and felony classification, as penalties for felonies are much more severe than misdemeanors. Usually, every weapon on that list, besides switchblades, constitutes a felony.

Possession of these weapons normally constitutes a third-degree felony, which yields:

  • Fines up to $4,000
  • Imprisonment from 2-10 years
  • Probation from 2-10 years

These charges increase dramatically when offended repeatedly.
