Illegal possession, which refers to the actual and unlawful possession of a deadly weapon such as a knife, gun, etc., is a crime in and of itself but one that frequently occurs in combination with other crimes. Individuals who have been charged with multiple crimes generally face tougher consequences if illegal possession is among the charges.
A significant number of illegal possession charges stem from illegal searches and other violations of individual rights. If you have been accused of illegal possession, choosing a skilled and aggressive criminal defense attorney is of utmost importance.
