Gun Crimes And Prison Sentences In Maryland

There are many gun crimes that will result in a mandatory prison sentence if you are convicted. Examples include:

  • Possession of a gun or ammunition by a convicted felon or fugitive from justice
  • Providing a gun or ammunition to a convicted felon or fugitive from justice
  • Using or carrying a gun during a drug crime or violent crime
  • Possessing or selling a stolen gun or ammunition
  • Possessing or discharging a gun in a school zone

Minimum mandatory prison sentences apply to many crimes involving weapons. For example, possession of a gun while committing a drug crime carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence of five years with no opportunity for parole. If you have three or more prior felony convictions, the mandatory minimum prison sentence is 15 years.

Do I Have A Defense To Firearm and Drug Charges?

Even if you think you are guilty of possessing a gun during the commission of a drug crime, you may have defenses available to you that would result in dismissal of the charges or a not-guilty verdict at trial. For example, if the weapon was in your vehicle, it may have been placed there by someone else. If police conducted an illegal search and seizure, the gun and drug evidence may be suppressed. Even if police have a strong case, our lawyers can look for mitigating factors that could result in a favorable plea bargain.
