Weapon Crimes in California

Ventura Defense Lawyers Who Are Former Police Officers & District Attorneys

California takes weapon crimes very seriously and has outlined strict parameters and harsh penalties to regulate their use in the community. Weapon charges do not usually involve the actual use of weapons or firearms. Instead, most of these laws are meant to be preventative and are usually enforceable when mere possession is determined.

These charges are often vulnerable to procedural errors by law enforcement and, as former police officers, our team has the knowledge and insight to find holes in the prosecution's case and bolster your defense. Do not hesitate any longer. Contact one of our Ventura weapon crime attorneys today.

Types of Weapons Charges

Weapon and firearm statutes in California encompass many different circumstances when weapons are present. Many of them are pursued as serious felonies by the prosecution. Common cases we defend our clients in include:

  • The selling of firearms
  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
  • Weapon possession by a convicted felon
  • Firing or projecting objects into an occupied building
  • Possession of an assault weapon
  • Carrying a concealed weapon

An important factor to note here is that "deadly weapon" definitions can be broadly defined by the prosecution. Kitchen knives, your fists, and even your vehicle can be defined as "deadly" if the prosecution can prove that they were wielded in a dangerous, intentional way.

Weapon crimes are also notorious for "piggybacking" onto other charges, such as domestic violence and drug crimes, even when weapons are not used but are instead merely found to be present. Additional circumstances of the incident in question, such as gang activity or knowledge that a weapon was stolen, can also color your charges differently and result in harsher penalties.

If you are facing a charge for a weapon crime, contact our defense lawyers. We are available to help Ventura residents 24/7.
