Firearm Charges

Firearm charges are crimes that are taken very serious by the Massachusetts State Police and local Town and City Police. If you are charged with a firearm or gun crime you should take your case serious too. At the law firm of Mahaney & Pappas, LLP, our Framingham lawyers have extensive experience defending against criminal allegations involving firearms.

There Are Serious Consequences To A Criminal Conviction

Chapter 269 Section 10 of the Massachusetts General Laws covers firearm charges. Some firearm charges carry minimum mandatory sentences. This means that if you, a family member or a friend is convicted of these specific firearm charges the judge or DA's office cannot reduce the jail time below what the minimum mandatory sentence is. Other types of firearm charges have the option of receiving a lesser sentence and even probation. Be sure you know your options before making a decision on your case.
