Defending Weapons Offenses in San Diego
Weapons Offense Charges
Because the laws are complex, being charged with a crime related to a weapon can immediately put you into a complicated mess. They are usually very serious charges and even if they were not the primary reason for your arrest, they can be added to other criminal charges. You need a San Diego violent crimes lawyer who is knowledgeable and experienced with related laws and how to help you navigate to the best possible outcome for such a case.
At The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC, we have helped numerous clients with defense for weapons offenses and other types of criminal accusations, charges and trials. If you or a loved one was charged, it is important to focus on a few key points. First, respectfully exercising your right to silence. Not speaking with investigators or law enforcement officers, but only to your attorney, is an important part of preserving your rights. Second, the sooner you get the help of an attorney, the better your chances are.
San Diego Weapon Offense Lawyer
Although the U.S. constitution maintains the right to keep and bear arms, California state laws regulate how weapons may be used. With the complexities of the relevant laws, you may be in violation of certain aspects of those regulations. This makes it even more important to have a competent lawyer on your side who can help you with defense of your case and guiding it to the best possible outcome. It is not really a matter of simply proving innocence or guilt, nor of negotiation for reduction of charges or the like. There are many ramifications which go along with criminal charges such as gun offenses, including your criminal record being established or added to. If you resisted arrest, that may be a strong factor, even if you felt it was warranted. An attorney is best qualified to provide legal guidance and represent your rights throughout the criminal justice process.
