Weapon Possession Lawyer in the Bronx

Get Personalized Counsel from Steven H. Goldman

Like a number of other crimes, District Attorney Offices throughout New York have adopted get-tough plea bargain policies regarding gun cases. That is why it is so crucial that you retain a legal advocate who is willing to fight on your behalf.

What Could Conviction Mean for You?

In New York City, most of the District Attorney Offices will not offer you a plea of less than 1 ½ years if you are charged with possessing a gun. If you have a prior felony conviction, you are looking at considerably more prison time. Defending such cases has, therefore, become much tougher.

Weapon or gun possession charges in New York include:

  • Third degree – charged with possession of a weapon when the possessor has previously been convicted.
  • Second degree – charged with possession of a weapon and the intent to use it against another person.
  • First degree – charged with possession of a weapon with plans to use it against another or a property. Or can be charged to those possessing more than 10 firearms.
