Because of how many crimes in Arkansas are legally defined, criminal cases frequently involve multiple charges: the primary crime itself and other crimes that are committed within the crime. One of the most prominent examples of this is a weapons crime. Someone might be charged with a violent crime, such as assault or attempted murder, and with a crime such as using a deadly weapon in the crime or being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Attorney John Wesley Hall works hard to defend the liberty of his clients. That includes making sure they are provided a strong defense against the crimes they are charged with, including those involving firearms.

Another case in which a weapons crime might be charged is if a person who is not permitted to own or carry a gun is caught with one. Sometimes this might come up in a traffic stop or some other activity that is unrelated to a criminal case or investigation. Someone who has been convicted of felonies or certain misdemeanors might be legally prohibited from having a gun, so even something as straightforward as a traffic stop might turn into a felony gun possession case.
Someone on parole or on probation who is caught with a weapon could be at risk of having the parole or probation revoked and being sent back to prison for the duration of his or her sentence. Being charged with illegal possession of a firearm could make the difference between regaining your liberty and serving a longer sentence.
