Gun Crimes

Understanding Gun Crimes In Illinois

A conviction for gun crimes can result in prison time and the long-term loss of certain rights. Therefore, it is important to know that you have options after being arrested.

The use of a gun while committing other offenses may elevate the charges from a misdemeanor to a felony and the consequences become significantly more serious. Common charges that are elevated due to gun possession are:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Sexual Assault
  • Drug Crimes
  • Robbery
  • Burglary

Possession of a gun by a felon can lead to federal charges which are much more stringent than the severe penalties under Illinois law.

Find a Lawyer Immediately After Being Charged

After being charged with a gun crime, it is crucial for you to retain counsel immediately. Your attorney needs to begin a fact-finding mission to thoroughly investigate the facts of your case and begin building a defense suited to your circumstances.
