Airport Gun Charges in New York City, NY
Accused of carrying a firearm into a New York airport?
If you brought a gun into a New York City airport, either intentionally
or accidentally, or packed a gun in your luggage without carrying the
required paperwork, you could be in trouble. This is a serious criminal
offense that could result in several years in federal prison, so it may
be in your best interest to avoid answering any questions until you have
had the chance to speak to a
criminal defense attorney. The team at H. Benjamin Perez & Associates, P.C. is committed

we have had success at trial for several clients who have been accused
of illegally carrying a gun into an airport.
An Overview of the Penalties that Could Be Imposed
If you have been accused of illegally carrying a gun into an airport, you
could face federal charges. The penalties imposed will likely be significant,
including up to
10 years in federal prison, if it is believed that you intended to commit a felony with the use of
the gun. The possession of a gun on airport property falls under federal
jurisdiction. Some people carry a firearm at all times as part of their
job duties, but this does not allow you to carry a weapon into an airport
or onto airport property without first gaining permission to do so. The
least that could be expected would be the confiscation of your weapon,
and in other cases, several years in prison. There are also fines that
will be imposed.
Interference with Airport Security Personnel
If it is alleged that you interfered with any airport security personnel,
and a gun was involved, the situation is even more serious. If you are
found guilty of committing such a crime, you could be facing life behind
bars—or at minimum, 10 years in federal prison. There are various
issues that must be addressed if you or a loved one has been accused of
this crime, so we urge you to contact us now.
