Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney & Former Prosecutor on Your Side
In California, most weapons offenses are classified as felonies, meaning the defendant will face a minimum term of imprisonment of 1 year in state prison. The possession or use of a weapon in the commission of a misdemeanor offense may also result in it being charged as a felony, and the use of a weapon in the commission of a felony may result in enhanced penalties. “Weapons” do not only include firearms. This term may also include knives, nunchaku, or any other “deadly weapon” that may be used to cause serious bodily injury or death to another person.
