Fresno Weapon Crime Defense

At Sawl Law Group, a Fresno criminal defense lawyer could defend you in a number of ways. In order for you to be convicted of a weapon offense, it must be proven that the weapon was yours and/or that you were indeed the one who was in possession of the weapon at the time of the offense. An attorney from our firm could review the evidence and build a strong case in your defense.

Keep in mind that guns and firearms are not the only types of weapons that could incur a weapons offense. Knives, imitation firearms, brass knuckles, and tear gas are all considered weapons under California law. Also, serious weapons offenses, such as illegally transporting large shipments of assault weapons, may be considered federal crimes and will be severely punished by the federal court.
