Protecting Your Rights When Facing Weapons Charges

Some Texas weapon charges can be brought as felonies. Prosecutors do not take weapon crimes lightly, particularly if the charges are brought in relation to other charges.

Some weapons offenses can be misdemeanors. However, if you are convicted of a misdemeanor weapons offense, you will still have a criminal record that is viewable by a potential employer.
