Weapons Crimes

Tulsa Weapon Crime Attorney

The presence or use of a weapon can significantly impact the way in which a criminal case is filed and prosecuted in Oklahoma. Generally, the use of a firearm while committing a felony is a separate chargeable offense. Moreover, the possession of a firearm is illegal for those previously (generally) convicted of a felony. Furthermore, there are many other criminal charges that can result from the possession or use of a weapon, and these charges are intensely prosecuted. To illustrate, some crimes, such as robbery, carries a harsher sentence than would absent the presence of a weapon. Other weapons charges include, but are not limited to:

  • Assault, Battery, or Assault and Battery with Dangerous Weapon
  • Allowing Minors to Possess Firearms
  • Carrying Firearms Where Liquor is Consumed
  • Possession of a Firearm on School Property
  • Unlawfully Carrying a Firearm
  • Unlawful Transportation of Weapons
  • Pointing Firearms
  • Felony Discharging Firearms

Oklahoma may require the civil forfeiture of any weapons the prosecution alleges were used in connection with a crime. Civil forfeiture of a weapon is separate and distinct from the underlying criminal case. However, even though a forfeiture case is a civil action, it is important to hire an experienced Tulsa criminal defense attorney to help you navigate civil forfeiture proceedings. There are very specific pleadings that must be filed, and time-sensitive deadlines.
