New York State is one of the harshest when it comes to gun crimes. If you are someone who has recently been charged with a gun crime, you must read on and reach out to our experienced firm to learn more about how we can help you going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have:
New York State categorizes gun crimes in accordance with their severity. As you can imagine, the more serious the crime, the harsher the penalties you will face. That is why it is extremely important that you hire an experienced attorney who has fought gun charges for his clients for years. New York gun crimes are categorized as follows:
Class B Misdemeanor
Class A Misdemeanor
Class E Felony
Class D Felony
Class C Felony
Class B Felony
Escalated charges are warranted if you are caught using a weapon in conjunction with another crime. For example, if you are arrested for robbery while in possession of a deadly weapon, you will most likely face a greater amount of jail time. Do not go down without a fight. Our firm will aggressively combat your gun charges in an effort to keep you free of jail and a criminal record, which may affect the rest of your life.
