In Connecticut, possession of a deadly weapon can result in jail time. In fact, there may even be a mandatory jail sentence. Therefore, it’s crucial to consult with us as soon as you’re charged with possession of a deadly weapon. There may often be circumstances which can justify or mitigate such a possession.
However, those circumstances and the facts surrounding them need to be carefully detailed. We need to review them with you and the prosecutor, and perhaps the judge, all of the facts which aren’t always contained in an initial police report. Therefore, it is important to take this charge very seriously because the state of Connecticut does.
