Carrying a Concealed Weapon
Carrying a concealed weapon is a common charge throughout North Carolina, especially in Charlotte and Concord. It is most frequently associated with guns and routinely happens when someone is pulled over and subsequently searched and a weapon is discovered. However, sometimes it will be uncovered in other circumstances. The nature of the charge however, does lend itself to cases involving searches. This means one of the common ways we challenge these charges is to challenge the search itself. Illegal searches are a constant concern when dealing with law enforcement officers, because even the best most well trained officers will make a mistake. This charge can also be challenged on other grounds and we would love the opportunity to sit down with you and discuss your case. Each case has a different set of facts and requires its own unique analysis. Carrying a concealed weapon is a class 2 misdemeanor for first time offenders, but escalates to an I felony on a second offense. It is important you fight these charges and do not let the charges go on your record.
