Have You Been Charged With A Firearms Offence?
Firearms offences vary from possessing firearms to being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm. Possessing an imitation firearm can be considered a firearm offence.
The Courts often impose very harsh penalties for firearm offences.
Some issues in firearms cases are;
- Was the firearm / gun capable of being used?
- Why did you have the firearm / gun with you on that particular day?
We work with you to put the offending in a context that makes a Judge understand it and for them to see how the firearms offence came about.
