Our Kansas City criminal defense lawyers represent people on felony weapon charges in the Kansas City area. Before becoming a criminal defense lawyer, Attorney Rokusek was a Federal Prosecutor focusing on gun and drug charges. She worked directly with federal agencies such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF).
As a result of our attorney’s experience as a federal prosecutor, we know how the government handles felony weapon charges, such as:
Most federal weapons charges are subject to a mandatory minimum sentence. If prosecutors can show that a weapon was used in a drug crime or was found in close proximity to a drug crime, you could receive a longer sentence.
The defense of a weapons charge often has to do with the issue of unlawful search and seizure. As your lawyer, we would analyze whether the police officer did anything illegal in the stop, search, or seizure of the weapon. If there is an issue with the police search and seizure, we work to get the weapon evidence suppressed.
If there is a defense to your drug crime charge, we will find it. Our criminal defense attorneys would never encourage a client to plead guilty to a weapons charge when there is an opportunity for a dismissal or an acquittal.
Your defense is too important to be left to an inexperienced lawyer. Contact us for a free consultation if you have been, or expect to be, charged with possession of an illegal concealed weapon by a felon or any other felony weapon charge in the Kansas City area.
