Weapons Violations in Indiana

The state of Indiana and the Federal Government takes weapons violations very seriously. The statutes regarding firearms ownership, sales, possession, and carrying can be complicated and confusing. Unintentional weapons violations may happen due to confusion about the law. In other situations, a person may be wrongly accused of a violation. I have extensive knowledge of state and federal law to provide experienced legal representation for clients facing all types of weapons charges.

The penalties for weapons crimes may include:

  • Unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon – 2-12 years in state prison
  • Carrying a handgun without a license – Up to 1 year in county jail
  • Prohibited sales or transfer of a handgun – 1 to 6 years in prison
  • Pointing a firearm – 6 months – 2.5 years in prison
  • Criminal recklessness – 1 to 6 years in prison
  • Firearm with an obliterated serial number – 1-6 years in prison

In addition to jail time, you could face other penalties. For example, you may lose your right to own a firearm, professional licenses, future employment opportunities, and educational opportunities. If you are not a US citizen, your application may be denied and you could be deported. When the stakes are high, it is important to consult with a knowledgeable Chesterton weapons crimes lawyer with experience in both State and Federal Court.

      "Highly recommend Adam. His prices are reasonable and he wont nickle and dime you like other attorneys. He's fair, and looks out for you as a person. Thanks Adam!"
      Adam did exactly what he said he would and helped me with my felony traffic case to get my charges reduced, helped me avoid community service, and even helped me apply for a restricted driver's license so I can still drive until my suspension is up. He answers your texts/calls, provides great advice and thoroughly explains your charges and the course of action you'll take at court. He's a great criminal defense attorney. Highly recommend Adam. His prices are reasonable and he wont nickle and dime you like other attorneys. He's fair, and looks out for you as a person. Thanks Adam!

      "I would highly recommend Adam to any clients in need of an attorney!"
      Adam is an awesome attorney in all aspects that offered and delivered a lot of help and all that he promised when we had originally first talked. He is very affable, and always is very quick to get back to you and answer all of your questions clearly. I would highly recommend Adam to any clients in need of an attorney!

      "He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on."
      He got the charges reduced, great communication, and cares about the case he is taking on. Never had to talk to a receptionist and wait on a call back since he gave his personal work phone number (being able to text/call) and got back as soon as he was able to. Very happy we came across him, not many compassionate lawyers out here that cares like he does. Will definitely recommend and hire again if needed!
