Utahns believe strongly in our second amendment right to keep and bear arms. Laws governing these rights vary from state to state, and because of this, it is important to ensure that your actions, while you are within Utah’s boundaries, are in compliance with Utah law. The penalties if you violate Utah’s gun laws can vary from relatively minor misdemeanor charges to first and second degree felonies. Utah prosecutors have been known to increase the charges after your initial appearance in court.
Have you Been Charged With a Weapons Offense?
If you have been charged with a crime involving a weapon in Utah, you need to contact an aggressive Utah defense attorney that is knowledgeable in how our courts operate, and someone that will fight to make sure your rights are not violated. A conviction of a crime involving a weapon can have an effect on your right to own guns. Do not let the charges that have been brought against you become a conviction. Don’t let the team of lawyers working for the government trample your rights. Contact a Salt Lake City lawyer with experience in dealing with these types of charges.
