Weapons Offences

Weapons Offences

With the prevalence of weapons in our modern society, it is important to understand that it is a criminal offence to have possession of a weapon in Queensland. You can be charged with this offence if you are carrying firearm or any other item that is determined to be a weapon.

Possessing almost any kind of weapon can result in a person being charged, unless the person has a licence for that weapon and is using it lawfully.

The maximum penalty for a possession of weapons offence is dependent upon the category of the weapon possessed and number of weapons – but can extend to imprisonment for up to 13 years depending on the seriousness of the crime.

These charges are typically dealt with in the Magistrates Court, however, if you are charged with possession of multiple weapons, your matter may be dealt with in the District Court.

If you are charged and have to go to Court, it is critical to seek the advice of a Specialist Criminal Lawyer. Howden Saggers Lawyers specialise in dealing with Weapons Offence Charges and we have been assisting people on the Gold Coast and Brisbane since 2002.
