Weapon Charges

Santa Ana Weapon Charges Attorney

Charged With a Weapons Offense?

There are many different individual criminal offenses that may be related to weapons. By definition, a weapon may include any type of firearm, explosive device, blade, or virtually any object that may cause injury to another person. In some cases, even a person’s fist may be considered a deadly weapon in Santa Ana courts. Anyone could face charges of a weapon offense if they inflict or threaten to inflict immediate bodily injury on another person using a dangerous object or weapon.

Depending on the particular offense and any injury inflicted upon a victim, a defendant may face either misdemeanor or felony charges for a weapons-related offense. At Thomas Tears, Attorney at Law, we represent clients throughout Santa Ana on weapon charges. We are committed to personal attention and high-quality, aggressive criminal defense counsel to each of our clients. A Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer can talk to you about your legal rights and your options in challenging your case. Your initial consultation is free and confidential, and our law firm takes on various types of cases of this kind, including:

  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Domestic violence charges involving a weapon or firearm
  • Unlawful possession of a weapon
  • Possession of an illegal weapon or firearm
  • Unlawful sale or distribution of a weapon
  • Weapons trafficking
  • Discharge of a weapon in the commission of a crime
  • Possession of a weapon in the commission of a crime
  • Unlawful discharge of a weapon

If you are charged with a misdemeanor weapon offense, you will likely face a maximum fine of $1,000 and a jail sentence of up to one year. Felonies incur higher fines and a sentence in state prison instead of jail. Keep in mind that many weapon crimes are “wobblers” that can be convicted as either a misdemeanor or a felony, which gives you a chance of reducing your charges when you cannot possible obtain a complete dismissal of your case.

Client Reviews

Mr. Tears is a true Gentleman with vast knowledge of criminals law and great understanding the court system. I have used Mr. Tears services several times first time in 1998 and most recently in 2020 and referred his services to several of my friends and everyone agrees he treated his clients with dignity and respect.

Fred Highland

There are hundreds of DUI lawyers out there, and I’m sure there’s are a few that know how to win, but I don’t think all attorneys have the legal experience and relentless compassion, followed up by the genuine care that Attorney Tom Tears has proven to me as a client.

Joel Villarreal

I never felt like he wasn’t completely devoted to my case and my well being. He truly cares about his clients and his willingness to work with me in regards to paying out the fees was amazing. I do not believe I could have found another like him. My gratitude is immeasurable.
