Michigan law prohibits various types of weapons-related conduct, including:

  • Unlawful Possession: Possessing a firearm without the required license or permit.
  • Carrying a Concealed Weapon: Carrying a concealed firearm or other dangerous weapon without a valid concealed pistol license.
  • Possession by Prohibited Persons: Possessing a firearm while being a convicted felon, adjudicated mental incompetent, or subject to certain domestic violence restraining orders.

Understanding the specific elements of the offense you’re charged with is essential for building an effective defense strategy.

 

Penalties for Weapons Offenses

In general, weapons offense convictions can result in significant consequences, including imprisonment, fines, probation, mandatory forfeiture of firearms, and a permanent criminal record.

 

Legal Defenses to Weapons Charges

When facing weapons offense charges, there are several legal defenses that may apply to your case. These defenses aim to challenge the prosecution’s evidence or arguments and seek to establish your innocence or mitigate the severity of the charges. Common defenses include:

  • Lack of Knowledge: You were unaware that you were in possession of a weapon.
  • Self-Defense: You possessed or used the weapon in self-defense or defense of others.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: The weapon was discovered as a result of an unlawful search or seizure by law enforcement.
