How Are Weapons Crimes Charged?

New York City gun or pistol crime consequences are very serious. If you are found in possession of a loaded, unlicensed firearm either on the street or in your home, you will likely face a mandatory minimum of two or more years in state prison. Felony criminal possession of a weapon is a violent felony offense that the police consider a priority.

Other weapons, however, are different. While there are some items that are automatically considered a weapon, there are others that may be labeled as such depending on how they are used. Misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon carries a penalty of up to one year in jail.

My Reputation For Excellent Representation

In any case, it is essential to your liberty, financial health and future that you obtain a results-driven attorney who will aggressively fight for you. I am attorney Scott G. Cerbin, Esq., and I am a trial attorney. I am not afraid to take a case to court if it is the best means to defend my client. Prosecuting attorneys are aware of my stance on trial and they often act accordingly when they see that I am their opponent.

My commitment to my clients comes from personal experience. I was once arrested and charged with a crime. I was represented by two very different attorneys. The first lacked dedication to my case and the second was wholly committed to helping me obtain an outcome that supported my best interests. My second lawyer inspired me to become the legal professional I am today: loyal to my clients and invested in their futures.
