Weapon Offenses

In the state of Ohio, adults can buy and openly carry a gun without a permit. However, those who wish to carry concealed weapons must have a concealed carry license and pass a background check. If you are facing charges of weapon offenses related to concealed carry license or another related offense, the attorneys at Hayes Law can help protect your rights.

While many citizens in Ohio are proud gun owners who enjoy hunting, sports shooting, gun collecting, and self-protection, Ohio limits gun ownership by criminalizing the following conduct:

A weapons conviction can have serious consequences, even if you had no intention of committing a crime. If convicted of a weapons-related offense, you may be prevented from legally owning or possessing a firearm in the future and it may have an impact on your ability to obtain certain employment.

If your offense is compounded with another alleged crime such as murder, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, or felonious assault, your situation becomes even more precarious. If you are stopped by the police and are found to be in possession of a weapon, the authorities may charge you with other offenses if the circumstances are present, such as: possession of drugs. We also defend individuals charged with these offenses. You need immediate counsel from a proven criminal defense attorney at Hayes Law.
