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 than 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.

Felon in possession of a firearm charge
Under state and federal law, convicted felons cannot carry a firearm, no matter what they intend to do with it. If caught with a firearm, they face consequences that depend on their particular situation. Our attorneys are experienced in defending illegal gun possession cases and will fight to protect your rights.
We use our experience to:

  • Fight to keep your gun charges out of federal court
  • Challenge the evidence against you
  • Challenge the search and seizure that led to the detection of the weapon
  • Fight to minimize your sentence
