Weapon Enhancements Lawyer in Chicago, IL
Weapon Enhancements Overview
Illinois has some of the strictest gun laws in the United States. Prosecutors do not hesitate to bring charges in weapon cases, and they often seek the maximum sentence for these offenses. The most striking parts of Illinois' weapon laws are the weapon enhancement statutes. Under these statutes, criminal offenses can be enhanced – charged at a higher level and carrying more prison time – than if that same crime was committed without a weapon.
If you are charged with a crime that involves a weapon enhancement, it may feel like the deck is stacked against you and a conviction is all but certain. Nothing could be further from the truth. At Heiderscheidt Law, attorney John Heiderscheidt aggressively advocates on your behalf and helps you protect your rights.
