Weapons Charges in Illinois
Weapons charges can include a wide range of offenses, from carrying a concealed weapon to unlawful use of a weapon. Weapons charges can be misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the nature of the alleged offense. If you are convicted of a weapons charge, you will face penalties such as jail time, probation, and/or fines.
Some weapons charges are "wobbler" offenses, which means that the prosecutor can charge them as either a felony or a misdemeanor. In order to determine the severity of the offense, the prosecutor will look at the alleged offense and other factors such as your criminal record. If you are charged with a weapons offense, it is important to have an attorney who is experienced in these types of cases, like Attorney Tamara de Silva, to help you understand the charges and explore all possible defenses.
