Weapons / Gun Trafficking
What is weapons trafficking?
It is a crime in Canada to manufacture or transfer a weapon without authorization. If you are charged with trafficking guns, the Crown Attorney must prove that you knew you were not authorized to manufacture or transfer the guns under Federal legislation.
You can also be liable for offering to manufacture or transfer weapons if that offer was put forward in a serious manner where you intended it to be taken as genuine.
How much jail time am I facing?
The maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years. Contact my office to better understand the penalties you are facing.
What to do if charged with weapons trafficking?
Remain silent. It is your right, and it is there to protect you. Do not talk to the police. But do talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. You have a right to speak with counsel upon detention or arrest – do so!
I am here to help you through the process of being charged with weapons trafficking. My job is to make the process easier for you - to review your case in relation to the charge(s) you are facing - address the court when, and as necessary – deal with the Crown Attorney for your matter – and give you the best defence at trial, or plea resolution possible. Make sure you have a lawyer that understands the law and is prepared to act for you.
