What are Examples of Gun Crimes

Violation of any gun laws or other weapon control laws could result in a serious criminal charge, and the possibility of heavy penalties if convicted.

Some of the most common weapon crimes include:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Illegal conveyance of deadly weapon, dangerous ordnance, or object indistinguishable from a firearm in a school safety zone or into a courthouse
  • Violation of firearm license duties

Penalties for Carrying a Concealed Weapon in Cleveland

For you to legally carry a concealed handgun, the law requires that you have a special license. Carrying concealed weapons or dangerous ordnance could lead to charges of a misdemeanor in the first degree, up to a third degree felony, based upon the circumstances in your case. Fines can range as high as $5,000 to $15,000, and the court could impose a jail term as long as 180 days, or a prison sentence up to 5 years.

As with all crimes, your criminal record could impact sentencing. The federal authorities also look to prosecute firearm violations, and you may be facing charges that have been filed in federal court – an extremely dangerous legal problem. Any weapon-related offense must be carefully managed by a high quality defense lawyer. Call upon our Cleveland criminal defense lawyer at once for defense counsel.
