Weapons Charges in Las Vegas
If you or anyone you know are facing Weapons Charges of any kind and you live in southern Nevada—whether you live in Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City or Mesquite—you need access to the best legal representation you can get as soon as possible.
You need a Las Vegas Gun & Firearm Attorney.
The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) cover all facets of Weapons Charge violations. Whatever the nature of your crime, the NRS will be the basis of our defense. It’s important to note that Weapons Charges mean all weapons, not just firearms, though those are the weapons most commonly used during crimes. Nearly always, crimes committed with the assistance of a weapon will face additional penalties, in both fines and time served, if any.
NRS 193.165 covers the additional penalty for the usage of a deadly weapon or additional agent, like tear gas, during the commission of a crime. The additional penalty added to the other crime or crime involved could range as much as 1 to 20 years. The court will take into consideration your criminal history (if any), the impact of the crime and weapon on any other individuals involved (possibly including Homicide, if someone was killed, whether intentionally or not), and the circumstances of the crime in question. We will be able to put mitigating factors before the court, again looking at the specific situation of the crime, which is why you should reach out for my expert legal help as soon as you can.
NRS 202 also covers potential Crimes Against Public Health and Safety. If you’re facing Weapons Charges from NRS 202.265, you must reach out to me for help. Even if you have a Concealed Carry Permit, unless you have specific written authority from a particular campus or child care facility, it is unlawful for you to carry a weapon with you. As mentioned above, Weapons Charges cover not only firearms but also potentially harmful things such as nunchucks, knives, explosive devices of any kind, pneumatic guns, as well as devices that could mark someone with paint. You may not even have realized that what you had on your person was a violation of the law until someone called you on it. If that’s the case we must begin your defense as soon as possible because your future could be on the line.
Weapons Charges are nothing to take lightly. Added penalties might mean more time in a state penal facility than you should spend, especially if the charges you’re facing were through no fault of your own. Even if they were, we may be able to bring the time behind bars you’re facing down considerably by arguing factors that will make you look more favorable before a judge and/or jury. Do the best thing you can to ensure your rights are protected. Douglas Crawford Law is an expert in these matters.
