Weapon Crimes in Georgetown, Texas
Weapon charges are prosecuted aggressively in Williamson County. Sentences for the illegal use or possession of firearms (and other weapons) can be stiff–Robert M. Phillips can help.
Weapon crimes, including simple weapon possession, refer to the unlawful possession, use, or showcasing of a weapon by an individual. However, according to law, a deadly weapon is defined as anything designed or adapted for lethal use, or that which is capable of causing death or serious bodily injury. Common items, such as knives or guns can fit this description, but that law also includes items such as baseball bats, automobiles, or even one’s own hands.
In Texas, gun and weapons charges are often combined with other criminal charges, including robbery, burglary, assault, and a variety of other offenses. However, even the mere possession of certain unlawful weapons is considered criminal. At Robert M.

Charged with a Weapons Crime in Texas? What Should You Do Now?
It is so important that you do NOT speak with authorities about your case before first speaking with a lawyer. You do not want to unknowingly convict yourself with your statements. A conviction for a felony weapons charge can carry serious criminal consequences, including a jail or prison sentence. To make matters worse, convicted individuals who carried or used a deadly weapon in their crime must serve half of their sentence before they are eligible for parole.
Additionally, any weapons charge that results in serious injury to another person will significantly increase the likelihood of a harsh sentence. In Texas, particularly in Williamson County, it is essential that you hire an attorney who will defend your rights every step of the way and help you deflect harsher penalties, and reduce or eliminate your prospect of receiving a long penitentiary sentence.
