Use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a crime
Using a weapon (which can be anything from a gun to a shod foot( during the commission of a misdemeanor or felony crime adds to your charges and can significantly increase the amount of prison time you face. For example, if you are charged with a felony in Idaho and you carried a gun during the alleged felony, you may face up to 15 more years in prison tan you would have faced without the gun. In a burglary situation, this means facing up to 25 years in prison – 10 years for the burglary and 15 years for the gun.
In Federal court, possessing a weapon while committing a crime can add points to your underlying charges and increase your sentence or make a misdemeanor a felony.
