Charged With A Weapons Crimes In Minneapolis?
A conviction in Minnesota on a weapons crimes charge – such as recklessly handling, selling, possessing or assault with a deadly weapon – can result in harsh criminal penalties. Penalties can include fines, jail time or prison time as well as an adverse effect on your employability and your ability to possess a firearm.
At Groshek Law PA in Minneapolis, our experienced criminal defense lawyers defend individuals throughout the Twin Cities against weapons and other violent crime charges.
Defending Your Record Against Gun Charges
It is important to realize that being arrested or charged with a weapons offense does not mean you are guilty. You may not have even realized you had a gun in your possession, and weapons laws are really meant to punish people for intentional possession of illicit firearms, not to punish people for having a friend’s gun mistakenly left in their vehicles.
Our founding attorney, Christa Groshek, has an extensive trial record and will work diligently to defeat the charges against you. If it is in your best interests, she may advise negotiating a plea agreement that avoids some of the harshest penalties at the state or federal level.
We represent clients in cases involving a variety of weapons-related offenses, including:
- Failure to have a permit
- Felony assault with a deadly weapon
- Illegally possessing a weapon
- Selling a weapon without the correct affiliation
- Unlawful discharge of a firearm
- Terroristic threats involving a weapon
If your right to bear arms has been taken away after being charged with a violent offense, we will help you pursue the restoration of your rights.
