A Weapons Charge Can Have Lifelong Consequences

We Will Work To Minimize The Impact Of Any Weapons Charge

Weapons charges often accompany charges from an incident such as a domestic assault, a drug arrest or a traffic stop. Weapons charges may be felonies or misdemeanors. Either way, these cases are prosecuted aggressively and have serious consequences, not the least of which is possible loss of your Second Amendment right to own a gun.

At Hansen Law, PLLC, we defend clients in Yakima and beyond against a wide range of weapons charges, including:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Possession of a stolen firearm
  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Unlawfully discharging a firearm
  • Illegal sale of a firearm
  • Possession of an assault weapon

Weapons Lead To Enhanced Charges

If a person uses a weapon while committing a crime, it often leads to enhanced charges and potentially a lengthier prison sentence. For example, second-degree robbery is a class B felony that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. A robbery in which a gun is used to threaten the victim is a first-degree robbery, a class A felony that could carry a sentence of life in prison.

Clearly, it is critical to enlist the services of a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney if you face any type of weapons charge. George T. Hansen is a former prosecutor who now defends individuals against criminal charges. His experience provides him with valuable insight on how prosecutors approach these cases and how much flexibility they have to negotiate reduced charges.
