Weapons charges range from felonies to misdemeanors. The class of offense is usually dictated by the weapon allegedly possessed. Certain types of knives, blackjacks, clubs, tasers, air rifles and firearms carry different sentences. Some allegations of weapons being involved in offenses such as robberies or assaults/batteries are not charges, but actually sentence enhancements. These enhancements can add up to 25 years to your sentence depending on the charge and the underlying offense.
