Firearm Penalties

Generally the penalties imposed by a court for a first offence are less than for repeat offenders. The reasons for a reduction in penalty may include:

  • Good character
  • Need for rehabilitation
  • Greater remorse
  • Extra curial punishment – The effect that a harsh penalty may have upon someone’s employment, travel and membership with associations

It is possible for all offenders charged with firearm and weapons to avoid a criminal conviction if the court makes an order under section 10 Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act. However, the courts treat firearm offences expecially serious, as such non-conviction can be hard to acheive.

If you have been charged with a firearm or weapons offence, we recommended that you seek legal advice promptly to properly determine your options. Our lawyers are highly experienced in firearm offences and can ascertain the strength of the prosecution case against you.
