Get an Aggressive Weapons Legal Defense - Robert A. Dodell Attorney At Law
Although Arizona has some very liberal gun laws, the use of weapons in a crime carry some very severe consequence. If someone was injured during the commission of a crime, those severe penalties increase substantially. Some of the acts that constitute a weapon offense include the following:
- Possession of an illegal weapon
- Possession of a weapon after convicted of a domestic violence offense or a felony
- Possession of a stolen weapon
- Illegally discharging a firearm
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Committing a drive-by shooting
- Violating probation or parole by possessing a firearm
- Misconduct with a weapon
If you have been charged with any weapons crime, the penalties could include extensive prison sentences, fines, probation and other penalties. Additionally, the penalties for a person who possesses a firearm in violation of probation or in violation of the terms of parole will incur additional consequences.
While a conviction of any felony will result in the loss of your civil rights, including your right to bear arms, those rights may be restored by the judge after a Motion to Restore Civil Rights is granted by the court. The motion can be filed soon after completion of probation or release from prison. However, if the conviction is for a “serious” offense, as defined in Arizona Revised Statute 13-706, gun rights can be restored only after a period of ten years after completion of probation or release from prison. There is a lifetime ban of your gun rights if the crime carried the designation of domestic violence, whether it is a misdemeanor or felony.
