The serious impact of your charge

Firearms and weapons laws are strict, and penalties can be severe as the Court has no or little tolerance for illegally having firearms or weapons. The consequences can involve a criminal conviction and record and consideration of a term of imprisonment.

The first thing you need to do after receiving a firearm charge is to set up legal representation as soon as possible. A Senior Lawyer needs to review all aspects of your case, and steps can immediately be taken to improve your position. To get started, contact Repute Law at 1800 888 228.

The Court is extremely concerned about illegal firearms and weapons in the community, so bail can become an issue for the more serious charges. If you are in custody or on bail and the conditions are unworkable, the team at Repute Law can file a bail application or bail variation. Contact us today to learn more. 

You can discuss the nature of your case with a Senior Firearms Lawyer from Repute Law today. Any firearms or weapons offence is serious as it impacts your reputation and can result in serious sanctions in Court.

Different types of firearm and weapons cases come with different penalties. The circumstance of your offending, including the type of weapon involved, where it was located, whether it was loaded, any explanation given by you and your personal history, criminal record and personal circumstances will all affect the penalty. A Firearms Lawyer from Repute Law can help you better understand your case and the outcome that is attainable for you.

The prosecution must prove you possessed or used a firearm and this was done in a way that was not authorised under licence or permit, or you did not have a valid firearms licence at the time. Depending on the specific charge, there will be additional matters to prove — for example, you discharged the firearm. Additional details and answers to specific questions can be answered by our Senior Firearms Defence Lawyers.

Pleading guilty means you accept all the elements of the charge. Before taking this step, we strongly advise you to consult with a Senior Lawyer from Repute Law. Our lawyers may be able to identify an issue with the police case which means it should not proceed and you do not have to answer the charge. In an appropriate case, an early guilty plea is advisable as it can give up to a 25 % discount on the sentence, which can mean the difference between a good outcome and a poor one.
