Hey there friend. Finding yourself facing gun crime allegations in Queens, New York? I know the fear and stress you must be feeling. Take a deep breath – help is here.
My name is Todd Spodek and I’m a criminal defense attorney who has successfully represented many clients charged with weapon offenses in Queens Criminal Court. As a former prosecutor myself, I know these charges are serious business. But with an experienced gun crime lawyer on your side, there is hope for a non-conviction resolution.
In this article, I’ll explain the various gun-related crimes you may be charged with in Queens and the aggressive defense strategies a skilled attorney can use to fight back against allegations by the DA. Don’t lose hope – read on to learn why fighting back against these charges is absolutely worth it.
There are a variety of weapon possession charges under New York Penal Law that you may face if caught with a gun in Queens, including:
Criminal Possession of a Weapon 2nd Degree – For possessing a loaded firearm illegally outside your home or place of business. This is a Class C felony.
Criminal Possession of a Weapon 3rd Degree – For possessing any firearm illegally. Class D felony.
Criminal Possession of a Weapon 4th Degree – For possessing certain weapons like switchblades, stun guns, or cane swords. Class A misdemeanor.
Unlawful Possession of a Large Capacity Ammunition Feeding Device – For possessing an ammunition magazine that can hold more than 10 rounds. Class A misdemeanor.
The specific charges and penalties you face depend on the type of gun, ammunition, your criminal record, and other circumstances. But make no mistake – an illegal gun possession conviction in NY comes with heavy fines and years behind bars.
The good news? Skillful defense lawyering can frequently beat these allegations. By challenging the DA’s evidence and police conduct, I have helped many clients in Queens avoid convictions for weapon possession.
Here are some of the strongest arguments I may raise as your defense attorney:
Illegal search & seizure – If police violated your 4th Amendment rights in their search and recovery of the weapon, all evidence flowing from that can be suppressed. This leaves the DA with no case.
No constructive possession – If the gun was found in your home or car but didn’t actually belong to you, we can argue you did not have knowing and intentional weapon possession.
Misidentification – Witness misidentification of you as the possessor of the gun often occurs. We can expose doubts.
Self-defense necessity – In certain contexts, possessing an unlicensed weapon for emergency self-protection purposes may be defensible.
Mental illness – Alleging you suffer from mental disease or defect that made you unaware of your conduct can defeat criminal intent requirements.
With an attorney aggressively pursuing exonerating evidence and legal defenses, my firm has helped many Queens gun crime defendants avoid the devastating consequences of conviction. No allegation is hopeless if you have skilled counsel in your corner.
If you’ve been arrested for any gun-related charge in Queens County, call an experienced criminal defense attorney right away before speaking to police and prosecutors. Attempting to navigate these allegations alone almost guarantees conviction, while a lawyer can strategically fight for your freedom.
