Concealed Weapon Charges in Edmonton, AB
Weapon charges can fall into two categories: concealed weapon laws and using a weapon in the commission of a crime. A person can be arrested and charged with weapon offenses that involve carrying or using a weapon. For instance, concealed weapon laws make carrying a concealed weapon or using a concealed weapon a criminal offense. Carrying or using a weapon in the commission of a crime enhances the seriousness of the charges brought against the offender.
Because of the seriousness of the penalties associated with criminal weapons charges, if you, or someone you know, are charged with any weapon-related crime, you should speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer immediately.

Weapons Offenses Carry Serious Mandatory Minimums
In most cases, gun and firearm charges carry serious mandatory minimum jail sentences. This is especially true if the offender is using or carrying a weapon in the commission of a crime. For example, a robbery, where a deadly weapon is involved, will carry a minimum four-year jail sentence.
When a criminal offense involves a gun or another weapon (e.g. brass knuckles, knives, blunt objects, etc.), it is more difficult to get a reasonable bail, let alone any bail at all.
Without an effective and aggressive defense team on your side, an accused offender may be stuck in jail for weeks or months waiting for a trial date to be set.
