Baltimore Gun Offense Attorney

Charged with a gun offense in Baltimore?

A gun offense occurs when an individual knowingly violates the law by committing an illegal gun-related act that results in arrest and subsequent charges. Weapons charges are taken very seriously in the state of Maryland, and the penalties for conviction can be very harsh indeed. Enlisting the services of accomplished Baltimore criminal defense attorney Richard S. Miller, Attorney at Law can provide accused offenders with the tools necessary to confidently meet ambitious prosecutors in the court room, and beat them at their own game by providing compelling evidence to expose critical errors in procedure that may render certain evidence inadmissible and thus useless, or casting reasonable doubt that the defendant could be guilty of the offense.

Gun offense penalties are quite strict because they are meant to discourage individuals from committing these acts, and avoiding penalties entirely. Those who are convicted of a gun offense may face a range of different penalties depending on the specific circumstance. The lightest penalty by far, carrying a handgun without a permit can yield jail sentences ranging from 30 days to 3 years, with subsequent penalties at 1 to 10 years for 2nd offenses and 3 to 10 years for more than 2 offenses. When this crime is committed in school property for the first time, convicted offenders will face anywhere from 90 days to 3 years in jail with 2-time offenders receiving 3 to 10 years in jail and more than 2 offenses resulting in anywhere from 5 to 10 years behind bars.
