Defending Those Who Have Been Arrested For Violating Gun Laws in California

The state of California takes gun crimes extremely seriously, and penalties can be harsh. Obtaining experienced legal counsel should be the top priority for a person who is facing firearms charges. A conviction for a weapons offense can have serious consequences, such as:

  • If your weapons charge is prosecuted as a misdemeanor in California, you could receive a sentence of up to 1 year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,000.
  • Weapons offenses that are charged as felonies are punishable by 1 to 20 years in prison. The length of the prison sentence will depend on the activity, the type of weapons crime, and previous criminal history, especially convictions for weapons-related offenses.
