What are the consequences of possession of a firearm in Pennsylvania? VIDEO

The consequences for possession of a firearm in Pennsylvania can vary. If a person is charged and arrested for a firearm offense, that can cause incredible burdens on a defendant and his or her family, it can affect the person's career or employment, future opportunities. If a person were to plead guilty or were to be found guilty of a firearm offense because a firearm offense is serious, it often would carry a presumption of a jail or prison sentence. The consequences can be tremendous.

They could be more fundamental in nature such as, again, a jail or a prison sentence, or other associated conditions of a sentence, probation, fines and costs, community service, for example, or they can be more abstract in nature, again, affecting a person's work or livelihood or their family or even family relationship. The consequences can be severe, both short and long term and both in fundamental and abstract ways. Having an experienced Pennsylvania criminal defense attorney will be able to help you best defend against a firearm charged and to best understand and navigate the criminal process.
