Pocatello Weapons Defense Lawyer

Legal Counsel for Weapons Charges – Call (208) 623-8021

If you have been charged with possession of a firearm, weapons possession, or any other type of weapon charge, it is critical that you retain our Pocatello criminal defense attorney to work on your case. Depending on the severity of the case, you could face state criminal charges or even federal charges.

As of July 1, 206, Idaho allows for qualifying residents 21 years or older to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. If you are facing charges, it may be due to a misunderstanding of the law on the part of law enforcement or prosecutors, which is why you need an attorney to protect you at this time.

Illegal Weapons in Idaho

In Idaho, it is a crime to possess a deadly weapon with the intent to assault another person and may even be tried as a felony crime. For example, if you brought a gun to your university classroom in order to shoot someone, even if you never actually follow through with your plan, you could be charged with aggravated assault.

Examples of deadly weapons include:

  • Brass knuckles
  • Guns
  • Explosives
  • Machine guns
  • Bombs
  • Poison Gas
  • Rifles with barrels measuring less than 16 inches
  • Altered or modified rifles or shotguns that are less than 26 inches

If facing a weapon charge for illegal possession, brandishing a firearm, or possession with intent to assault, you could face punishments that include jail or incarceration, steep fines, community service, and possible restitution if there were injury victims as a result. With your future at stake, there is no time to waste in obtaining defense. That is why you must retain the services of our Pocatello criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
