Arm yourself against weapons charges is Denver, Colorado.

If you’ve been charged with a weapons offense, you can expect to be treated harshly by the Colorado justice system. Often, most people will assume that you planned to use the weapon.

At the Law Office of Andres R. Guevara, we understand that charges like these can change your life. It can be scary, confusing, and frustrating to try to navigate the criminal justice problem alone, and it can seem like no one is on your side.

How weapons charges effect your legal case

If you are accused of a crime and accused of using a weapon during that crime, you will face significantly harsher penalties.

For example, if you are accused of robbery without a weapon, you will be charged with simple robbery. If you had a weapon in your possession during the event, you will be charged with aggravated robbery, even if you did not use the weapon. Aggravated robbery is subject to a mandatory prison sentence in Colorado.

Weapons recovered in drug cases are also often used to increase the penalties against the accused person.

The legal team at the Law Offices of Andres Guevara are here to help you through this process, defend your rights, and fight your charges. We will be your advocate in and out of court, and we will work to achieve the best possible outcome for your particular case. If the police found evidence against you using an illegal search warrant, for example, we will work to suppress this evidence.
