Baltimore Criminal Attorney

Weapons Charges

If you or someone you know is facing a weapons charge, contact us here at the law office of the Baltimore Criminal Defender as soon as possible to discuss your case.

The state of Maryland has some of the strictest weapon and gun charges in the nation.

First, it is a crime to carry a weapon – even with a permit – with the intention to commit a crime. The understanding of this statute is broad for a reason – to put arrested offenders in jail for a crime they may or may not have committed.

Carrying a firearm without a proper permit is also a crime. For a first-time offense, the minimum sentence is 30 days in jail, with a maximum sentence of 3 years in prison. This sentence is for a first-time offense! The penalties only increase with every other instance. Unlawfully carrying a handgun for a second time will get you a minimum of 1 year in jail with a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.

Our Baltimore Criminal Attorney Has Extensive Experience

The presence of a weapon during a crime also increases the amount of punishment you face. A robbery charge for instance will be bumped up to armed robbery if the police catch you with a knife or a witness says you had a gun.

Our Baltimore lawyer has years of courtroom experience and knows his way around the legal system. He will work with you to build a strong defensive strategy for your case. Whether you have been arrested for something as minor unlawfully carrying a handgun or committing a violent crime with a weapon, we will work with you to defend your rights and to obtain a favorable outcome.
