Immigrant Firearm Charges in New York
About Firearms Charges
In the state of New York, firearms offense charges can have very severe consequences. New York has some of the sternest laws concerning firearms possession in the country. Guns that are perfectly legal to possess in many other states are often illegal to possess in New York. In NYC, gun permits are almost impossible to obtain, and strong fines and penalties follow firearms-related convictions, including mandatory imprisonment terms in many cases. Those charged with firearms offenses will need aggressive defense to ensure their rights and freedoms are protected to the greatest extent possible.
When an immigrant is convicted of a firearms-related offense the penalties can also include deportation. These charges therefore have the potential to have devastating effects on one's family, and future. The pursuit of U.S. citizenship is an honorable dream, and a conviction of this kind of offense can render that dream nearly impossible. If you or someone you love has been charged with a firearms offense, you are urged to contact a
New York immigration defense lawyer as quickly as possible to explore your options in defending your case.
