At Barton & Associates, Attorneys at Law, PLLC, we recognize the complexity of weapons-related allegations and are here to provide crucial information for individuals navigating these legal challenges.

  2. Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon: Involves the use of a weapon to cause serious bodily injury or the threat of imminent harm.
  3. Discharging a Firearm in a Municipality: Charges associated with the unlawful discharge of a firearm within city limits.
  4. Possession of Prohibited Weapon: Involves possession of weapons considered illegal in Texas, such as brass knuckles, certain knives, or explosive devices.

Potential Consequences of Weapons Charges:

Weapons charges can lead to severe consequences, including:

  1. Criminal Penalties: Convictions may result in fines, probation, or imprisonment, depending on the nature and severity of the offense.
  2. Firearm License Issues: Convictions may lead to the revocation or denial of a concealed carry license or your ability to open carry in Texas going forward.
  3. Enhanced Penalties: Certain factors, such as prior convictions or the use of a weapon in the commission of another crime, can lead to enhanced penalties.
