New York Weapons Possession

Pistol

On both Long Island (Nassau County and Suffolk County) and in the City of New York (the counties of the Bronx, Queens, Kings, Richmond and New York counties) law enforcement agencies are aggressively prosecuting crimes involving illegal hand guns.

The crime involving the possession of an illegal handgun is technically called Criminal Possession of a Weapon. Weapons that fall into this category involve knives, switchblades, billy clubs, brass knuckles, swords, nunchucks, and gravity knives. Although criminal possession of a weapon is also vigorously prosecuted in the five Boroughs of the City of New York, individuals charged in Nassau and Suffolk counties may receive harsher sentences, should they be convicted. The current mandatory sentence in New York is a minimum of 3 ½ years in prison if you are convicted of a felony involving gun possession.

Our New York and Long Island Criminal Attorneys are available to meet with you to discuss how to avoid long prison sentences involved with the criminal charges of possession of a weapon. We seek to have these charges reduced from felonies to misdemeanors. In cases involving weapons, our skilled and experienced attorneys give individual attention to each case. In some cases, an affirmative defense, called "transitory possession of a weapon" can be presented. Should you be charged with possession of a weapon, you need experienced attorneys. Our New York and Long Island Criminal Defense Attorneys are available weekdays and weekends to meet your needs. Call us. We will help you.
