Possession of a firearm or gun has become one of the most serious offenses in Philadelphia as the District Attorney tries to curb the gun violence in the city. It is often the first step taken toward any violent offense. While you are subject to incarceration merely for possession of a firearm without a license to carry, the penalties escalate dramatically for every offense committed while in possession of a firearm, even if the gun is never discharged. Don't face your criminal charge in Philadelphia alone, call the Fishman Firm today.
Due to recent legislation, possession of a firearm during the commission of most violent crimes and possession with intent to deliver drugs triggers mandatory minimum sentences where the judge has no discretion but to impose significant state incarceration. For example, if you are convicted of robbery, burglary, rape, aggravated assault, attempted murder or other violent crimes and you are in possession of a firearm, the court must impose a mandatory sentence of 5 years of incarceration
