The gun possession laws in Maryland are strict and carry mandatory minimum sentences. Offenses such as possession of a firearm after a previous conviction of a felony, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, use of a firearm in a drug trafficking crime and others include mandatory minimum jail time or five years in the penitentiary without parole as well as a total time of 20 years per firearm, to be served consecutively to any accompanying or underlying offense. If you have any type of gun possession or firearm charge, do not take it lightly.
These charges involve not only potentially severe consequences but also a permanent stain on your record that affects you for the rest of your life. Having an experienced criminal defense attorney is essential to your case.
