If Your Charges Involve a Firearm; Call a Kansas City Criminal Defense Lawyer Now!

The Second Amendment guarantees your right to carry and protect yourself with a firearm as an American citizen. However, it does not grant you the right to use it to harm anyone or perpetrate an illegal action. If you are arrested and charged with a crime that involves the use of a firearm, it’s imperative that you speak with a skilled Kansas City criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Using a firearm in order to execute or commit a crime is often considered an augmenting or aggravating factor, meaning you could face serious charges with elevated penalties because of the presence of the firearm during the act.

Attorney Jackie Rokusek and the team of legal professionals at Rokusek Stein Law, LLC have participated in more than 50 jury trials and more than 100 bench trials in city, state, and federal courts. With more than 30 years of combined experience, our team has developed a reputation for our commitment to client success and aggressive, formidable representation. We are thorough in our preparation and relentless in our pursuit of justice on your behalf, and we are dedicated to obtaining the best possible outcome to your case.

Why Are Weapons Crimes So Serious?

While you have the right to own a firearm, law enforcement take these weapons extremely seriously, and there are numerous rules and regulations to improve public safety by limiting the number of firearms that could fall into the wrong hands. In an effort to discourage people from using them while committing crimes, laws have been passed which significantly increase penalties for crimes in which a firearm is involved.

Crimes that often involve the use of a firearm include:

  • Robbery
  • Assault
  • Murder
  • Sex crimes (rape, molestation, etc.)
  • Perjury (lying on a background check to obtain a firearm)

Having a firearm involved in a crime often upgrades charges to felony status, resulting in multiple years in prison, immense fines, and even the loss of the right to own a firearm again in the future. Because these added consequences can be so serious, it’s highly advised you speak with a lawyer about your case as soon as possible to start reviewing your options. Think the presence of a firearm is impossible to combat?

Think again. In some cases, a firearm’s presence doesn’t necessarily mean it was used in order to perpetrate a crime, thus meaning it can’t be held against you or used to augment your charges.
