Suppressing Illegally Obtained Evidence
Oftentimes, police misconduct leads to the illegal search and seizure of these weapons. Evidence obtained illegally cannot and should not be used against you. As your attorney, I am skilled in motions practices and can file a motion to suppress evidence to get your criminal charges dismissed or devalued.
A weapons violation charge is a serious offense. More often than not, if you are charged with one, the district attorney will likely seek actual jail time from you. Furthermore, certain statutory enhancements can add on 10 or even 20 years in prison. You need to obtain an attorney who is not only knowledgeable in this area but can seek dismissals on statutory enhancement as well as defend with the appropriate motions.
