Oklahoma City Weapons Charges Attorney

The presence or use of a weapon can greatly impact the way a criminal case is filed and prosecuted in Oklahoma. In general, the mere use of a firearm while committing a felony is a separate chargeable offense. Moreover, the possession of a firearm is illegal for those subject to felony conviction consequences. Furthermore, there are many other criminal charges that may result from the possession or use of a weapon, and these charges are vigorously prosecuted, which is why a weapons charges attorney is crucial for these types of offenses. To illustrate, some crimes, such as Robbery or Attempted Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon or Imitation Firearm, are charges that carry harsher sentences than the equivalent would absent the presence of a weapon. Other weapons charges include, but are not limited to:

  • Assault, Battery, or Assault and Battery with Dangerous Weapon
  • Allowing Minors to Possess Firearms
  • Carrying Firearms Where Liquor is Consumed
  • Carrying a Weapon Under the Influence of Alcohol
  • Possession of a Firearm on School Property
  • Unlawfully Carrying a Firearm
  • Unlawful Transportation of Weapons
  • Pointing Firearms
  • Discharge of a Stun Gun, Tear Gas, Mace, Pepper Mace or Other Deleterious Agent Against Officer
  • Felony Discharging Firearms
  • Felony Use of a Slung Shot
  • Contraband, Weapons, Explosives, Drugs, Money, or Tobacco in Penal Institutions or Jails
  • Transporting a Loaded Firearm
  • Furnishing Firearms to Mentally Incompetent or Insane Persons

Furthermore, Oklahoma law may also require the civil forfeiture of weapons the prosecution alleges were used in conjunction with a crime. A civil forfeiture case is separate and distinct from the underlying criminal case. However, even though the forfeiture case will be filed as a civil action, it is very important to hire a weapons charges attorney to help you navigate the civil forfeiture proceedings. There are very specific pleadings that must be filed, and the deadlines are time-sensitive.
