Weapons Charges in San Diego County
Charged with a Weapons Crime?
Weapons Crimes are a category of criminal charges resulting from the unlawful use or possession of a weapon. If the weapon was used during the commission of a crime, additional charges may be filed as well. The weapons crimes category is very large, covering weapons you might not even consider. Situations which may result in the filing of weapons charges include:
- Use or display of a weapon
- Improper carrying of a concealed weapon
- Possession of an illegal weapon
- Improper storage of a weapon
- Illegal sale of a weapon
- Possession of a weapon near a school
While these are the most common scenarios, virtually any instance in which a weapon was present may be prosecuted as a weapons crime.
