Peoria, Illinois: Criminal Defense in Illegal Weapons Cases
Weapons charges are often added to other criminal charges, such as when the police find an illegal weapon during a search conducted for other reasons or when commission of the crime using a weapon is an additional offense. Criminal charges of possession of illegal firearms or violation of "conceal and carry" laws often go along with arrests for drug crimes and armed robbery.
Charges of illegal possession of weapons can carry serious consequences. Any crime committed with a gun will carry a more serious sentence. The consequences of weapons charges are also especially serious for convicted felons, who are prohibited from owning handguns and most other classes of weapons.
