Firearms and Weapons Offenses
Firearm and weapon charges can be prosecuted if you are simply found to be in possession of a firearm or weapon. Weapon and firearm offenses carry a minimum sentence of 3-5 years of imprisonment.
Canada and the prosecution have a zero tolerance for weapon and firearm offenses, and these cases are extremely hard-fought.
If you are found guilty of possessing a firearm weapon in the course of committing another offense there is a mandatory minimum sentence, and you will absolutely serve jail time if convicted.
Firearm and weapon legislation has changed over the years. Depending on the type of firearm and/or weapon you possess, you may be entitled to a lesser charge. In addition, the mandatory minimum sentences have recently been challenged and found unconstitutional.
It is therefore imperative that you retain a defence lawyer who is up to date with firearm and weapon offenses and the changing landscape regarding the laws. Do not delay in hiring an attorney.
