Weapons Charges


Guns will always be in the news. And while many people may only associate weapons crimes with guns, nearly anything can be used as a weapon under Michigan law, which are some of the most strict in the nation. As a result, prosecutor’s and law enforcement take tough stances on crimes involving weapons.

Knives, Tasers, beer bottles, rocks, gardening tools, and automobiles can be considered dangerous weapons and can form the basis of a felonious assault or assault with a dangerous weapon charge. But, generally speaking, guns are considered the most dangerous. The consequences of using a gun during the commission of a crime are severe. – so severe in fact that in Michigan you can be sent to prison for a MANDATORY two years if you commit a crime using a firearm. For any crime involving a weapon, you need the best legal representation in Michigan and that is the West Michigan Defense Team.

Our Approach

In all cases we meet with the client to gather facts and determine the strengths and weaknesses of their case. Key factors having an impact on a weapons case are:

• Was the firearm discharged?
• Was the firearm even operable?
• Is there a self-defense claim?
• Was the weapon found in the possession of the defendant?
• Was the defendant legally in possession of the weapon?
• Was anyone injured in the incident?

After a full evaluation of a client’s case we then proceed forward to try and achieve the best possible resolution, through either plea negotiations or trial. But the ultimate decision on taking a plea or going to trial always resides with the client. Sometimes, due to the tough stance prosecutor’s take in cases involving firearms crimes, plea negotiations can be an uphill battle and trial becomes an inevitability. Regardless of what type of Michigan weapons charge you are facing, the attorneys at the West Michigan Defense Team have the experience, knowledge, and ability to vigorously represent you every step of the way.
