Weapons Offenses

Some weapons offenses are obvious, such as threatening another person with a gun or knife. Others are less obvious, such as simply carrying an object that could be used to inflict deadly harm. Because Ohio's laws are complex when it comes to firearms, explosives and other potentially deadly instruments, it pays to consult a lawyer who truly understands the nuances of the law.

Turn to Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC. Based in Columbus, our attorneys represent individuals statewide who have been accused of all types of weapons violations. Our firm includes former prosecutors who are very familiar with charges such as:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon (CCW)
  • Improper discharge of a firearm
  • Possession of a firearm as a convicted felon (weapon under disability)
  • Improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle
  • Using firearms while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs
  • Unlawfully possessing a dangerous ordinance

Penalties For Carrying A Concealed Weapon In Ohio

Unless you have a special permit to carry a concealed weapon, you can be charged with either a misdemeanor or felony for this offense, depending on the type of weapon and the circumstances. Penalties range from up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines to up to 18 months in prison and up to $5,000 in fines.

Even if you have your CCW permit, you can easily lose this privilege if you do not strictly adhere to the sometimes confusing rules and regulations associated with that privilege.
