Gun Charge Attorney in Brooklyn
Decades of Experience to Fight for Your Future
If you are facing gun charges in New York, you need to talk to a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. You may be facing extremely harsh penalties that include loss of civil liberties, lengthy prison sentences, immigration consequences, and much more. At The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie, our Brooklyn gun charge defense attorney and former felony prosecutor defends clients charged with serious gun crimes in New York.
Many gun crimes in New York are subject to mandatory minimum prison sentences, laws that dictate the shortest amount of prison time that a person can be sentenced to when convicted. Judges have no power to reduce these mandatory sentences, even in cases where extenuating circumstances would normally merit mercy.
Often, these mandatory minimum sentences will call for prison terms of a year or more. Given these serious consequences, it is important that you work with a criminal defense attorney who can help you protect your freedom.
The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie defends individuals charged with a wide range of gun-related crimes, including:
- Illegal gun possession
- Possessing an unregistered gun
- Possessing a large capacity magazine
- Possessing an assault weapon
- Illegal firearms sales or trafficking
- Failure to register a firearm
- Possessing a weapon on school grounds
New York's Restricting Gun Laws
The New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act was passed in 2013, and it imposes strict regulations on gun owners. The goal of the SAFE Act was to prevent criminals and individuals with severe mental illnesses from purchasing guns. Today, individuals looking to buy a gun must pass a background test, and the possession of previously legal guns and accessories is now a crime. The law also increased penalties that are assigned to individuals who are convicted of gun crimes.
Governor Andrew Cuomo has called the New York SAFE Act the "toughest gun control law in the U.S." The law strictly limits the rights of gun owners. Even gun owners who have no intention of breaking the law may find themselves struggling to understand these draconian gun laws and unintentionally breaking them.
If you have been accused of violating the SAFE act, get help from a skilled gun defense attorney. Attorney Wilson LaFaurie has years of experience protecting the rights and freedoms of my clients. As your advocate, we will help you resolve the charges you are facing in the most favorable possible way.
Tough Negotiator, Ready for Trial
In some cases, obtaining the best possible result means negotiating carefully with prosecutors to obtain a favorable plea bargain. A plea bargain can save a great deal of time and money, enabling you to secure a reduced sentence and move on more quickly. If we cannot reach a favorable settlement, however, we are always prepared to go to trial to protect your rights.
