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.
Simply put, your freedom could be at stake if the right steps are not taken immediately after your arrest. Fortunately, our New York City violent crime lawyers at H.
