Weapons Charges

Richmond Weapons Crimes Attorneys

Experienced counsel for serious charges in Richmond

Gun and weapons related crimes are considered a serious problem in this country and both law enforcement and prosecutors have a vested interest in prosecuting these offenses. Although many follow the law in legally obtaining their weapons, the media has put a spotlight on weapons offenses. Because of this, judges and prosecutors will often make an example out of even the smallest offenses or mistakes.

If you have been charged with a weapons crime, you could be facing a prosecutor who wants nothing more than to take away your constitutional right to possess a weapon. At Throop Law, our Richmond criminal defense lawyers fight against weapons and gun-related charges.

Consequences & impact of weapon charges

If you are convicted of a weapons charge, you could face very serious legal penalties. Depending on the nature of the alleged crime, you could face time in jail or prison, significant fines, restitution, community service, and probation. If you are convicted, you will likely lose your ability to possess a firearm and face further restrictions.
