Weapon Charges in Los Angeles
If you are facing a weapons charge in Los Angeles, it likely falls into one of three categories: commission of a crime with the use of a deadly weapon; illegal possession, sale or manufacture of a firearm; or a weapons offense involving something other than a firearm such as a knife or brass knuckles.
To prove illegal possession of a firearm, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you knowingly possessed the firearm. If your friend placed a gun in your car or home and you had no knowledge of such fact, you would not be guilty of a crime. Another possible defense strategy is to seek the suppression of a seized firearm if it was obtained as a result of an unconstitutional search and seizure.
