However, most concealed weapons charges deal with a handgun, whether loaded or not, with or without a permit.
Concealed weapons charges are aggressively prosecuted in San Diego County. As a former deputy district attorney, Anna Yum is completely familiar with the outlook and tactics that a district attorney may use in your case. She also knows how to defend an individual charged with carrying a concealed weapon, such as citing evidence of an illegal or improperly conducted search and seizure, illegal interrogation techniques, self-defense or defense of another person or property, and lack of intent.
Consequences of Carrying a Concealed Weapon
The consequences of being arrested for carrying a concealed weapon range from getting the charge(s) dismissed to much more severe penalties. An individual with no prior criminal history who is arrested for carrying a concealed weapon may be charged with a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum of one year in jail plus a fine. If a person is convicted of carrying a loaded concealed firearm without a permit to do so, he or she is facing felony-level incarceration. A criminal record of any concealed weapons conviction can make it difficult for an individual to obtain employment and housing.
Even simply transporting a legally obtained, permitted firearm in an incorrect manner can result in a concealed weapons charge.
