We Defend the Full Range of Gun Charges in Edmond, Oklahoma

While Oklahoma is a state that has strong Second Amendment protections, police and prosecutors also take gun crimes very seriously. A firearms charge could lead to serious criminal penalties. A person could potentially face a felony that carries significant prison time. Our firm takes on all types of gun charges in Edmond, Oklahoma, including:

  • Unlawful Possession of a Firearm (After former Conviction): A person may face this charge if they were previously convicted of a felony and are subsequently found in possession of a firearm in violation of the law. 
  • Possession of a Firearm in the Commission of a Felony: A person found to have a firearm in their possession while committing or attempting to commit a felony offense can also face an additional (very serious) felony gun charge. 
  • Reckless Discharge of a Gun: When a firearm is discharged in a manner that shows a reckless disregard for the safety of others, it could lead to a criminal charge in Edmond (Oklahoma Statutes § 21-1364). 
  • Assault and Battery with Dangerous (or Deadly) Weapon: Any person in Edmond accused of using a firearm (or other dangerous weapon) to commit assault or battery can face a serious felony. 

An Overview of Defense Strategies for a Gun-Related Offense

How do you defend a gun charge in Oklahoma? The answer depends entirely on the specific circumstances of the case. At Fassio Law, our Edmond criminal defense lawyers will thoroughly review the allegations and the evidence to determine the best way to protect your rights and your future. Common defense strategies in gun crimes cases include:

  • No Probable Cause: If police conducted a search without having probable cause, the evidence that was obtained (such as a firearm) may not be admissible in court. As explained by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS), probable cause is a “reasonable amount of suspicion, supported by circumstances sufficiently strong enough to justify a prudent and cautious person's belief.
  • Self Defense: If a person used or displayed a firearm in self defense, they may have an affirmative defense available when facing certain gun charges.
  • Lack of Evidence: Prosecutors always have the burden of providing sufficient evidence to prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Plea Agreement: We recognize that many defendants can actually get the best deal—the one that protects their future—by avoiding a trial.
