Weapons Offense Penalties in New York

Being convicted of criminal possession of a weapon can result in jail time of up to 15 years or more if there are other circumstances which compound the offense. For example, if you bring a weapon into a public place, the charges are much more severe than charges simply for having an unregistered gun in your home. Misdemeanor charges of illegal possession of certain types of knives or brass knuckles will not usually result in jail time, but they are not minor offenses.

Proving a Weapons Offense Case

Many people don't know that they are in violation of the law until charges are filed. Being in possession of a weapon does not require you to have it on your person. If you have exclusive access to a gun in your car or in your home, you can be charged with illegal possession.
