Scranton Federal Firearms Crimes Lawyer
Defending Against Federal Gun Charges in Lackawanna County
The federal government has several statutes regulating the possession, sale, transfer, transport, and manufacture of firearms. The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) investigates people believed to have violated the law and recommends prosecution. If a person is convicted of a federal firearms offense, they may face harsh penalties, including a lengthy prison sentence. If you've been charged with such a crime, speak with a skilled lawyer about your case as soon as possible. The government spends a considerable amount of time looking into alleged violations, which means the prosecutor may have ample evidence to attempt to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
