The legal issues are complex, especially since Virginia criminal laws on weapons charges are broad in terms of definitions and what constitutes an offense. Plus, with some crimes, you are not just facing jail time and fines for a conviction. If found guilty, there are collateral consequences and implications for your civil rights.
A solid defense is critical if you were arrested for weapons charges, and Hampton Injury Law PLC has the experience and skills to protect your rights.

For a felony weapons offense, the minimum prison sentence is one year and increases based on the crime. A Class 4 felony conviction is punishable by 2 to 20 years of incarceration.
