Weapons Offenses

Chris Shumate has successfully represented many Charlotte residents facing weapons charges.  The North Carolina statutes designate a variety of weapons offenses.  Some of the more common offenses include: 

  • Carrying A Concealed Weapon (CCW) - N.C.G.S. 14-269
  • Assault With A Deadly Weapon (AWDW) - N.C.G.S 14-33(C)(1)
  • Possession Of A Weapon On Campus Or Educational Property - N.C.G.S 14-269.2
  • Possession Of A Firearm On City Property - Local Ordinance

The listed charges do not constitute a comprehensive list of all the possible weapons offenses under North Carolina law.  If you are charged with a crime involving a weapon, you should contact a qualified Charlotte criminal attorney to discuss the details of your case and the applicable law.

These charges often result from simple mistakes or misunderstandings.  Perhaps you drove a friend's vehicle, and you were unaware that a firearm was in the glove box.  You may have simply forgotten about the pocket knife in your jacket pocket.  Perhaps you accidentally took a weapon into the airport.  These scenarios do unfortunately occur.  They result in significant criminal charges, and you need an experienced attorney like Mr. Shumate to assist you.  No matter what events transpired, the guidance of a knowledgeable attorney is of great benefit during all stages of the judicial process.  A skilled criminal defense lawyer can steer you through the criminal justice system properly.
