Carrying Weapons in Unauthorized Locations

Carrying Weapons in Unauthorized Locations

Sugar Land Gun Charge Lawyer

In Texas, the law is clear. It is unlawful to carry a weapon, such as a club, knife, firearm, or any other prohibited weapon listed in Section 46.05(a)...(3) on the premises of any government court or offices utilized by the court, unless you have prior written authorization of the court. Obviously, it is a defense if you possessed the firearm while in the actual discharge of your duties as a member of the armed forces, National Guard, were employed by a penal institution, or were an officer of the court. It is also unlawful to carry a weapon, whether concealed or not, while at any meeting of a government entity.

Aggressive, Talented Trial Lawyers in Sugar Land for Weapons Charges

The question is, what defense could you possibly have if you have been charged with a violation of this law? At Stornello Law Firm, P.C. Attorney Stornello has been practicing criminal law for 25 years, as a prosecutor and now as a criminal defense attorney. Our skill lies in the ability to develop a strategy to examine all of the evidence, and create a reasonable doubt in the mind of the jury as to whether the accused had the intent to commit the crimes they were charged. As a former prosecutor, I have seen the other side of the courtroom firsthand, and am fully aware of the problems involved with successfully sustaining a conviction in cases of weapons charges. This experience gives an insight that other defense attorneys may take decades to develop.
