When can you be charged with a weapons charge ?
Being charged with a weapons offense or gun violation in Washington State can be very frightening, especially for first time offenders. Gun and weapons charges are very serious crimes, and are often times prosecuted very aggressively with tough consequences. These consequences may involve serious jail time.
|Misdemeanor||0 to 90 days||Up to $1,000|
|Gross Misdemeanor||90 days to 1 year||Up to $5,000|
|Class B Felony||1 years to 3.5 years||No limit|
|Class C Felony||Up to 1 years||Up to $10,000|
Regardless of the degree charged the goal remain the same. We will help you avoid the conviction for the criminal charge, but perhaps more importantly, keep you out of jail.
