Unlawful Possession of a Firearm
Michigan Gun Crimes Lawyers Fighting for Your Rights
Michigan takes its gun laws very seriously and any violation has a risk of carrying severe fines and penalties. MCL 750.234(d) specifically makes it illegal to possess a firearm on certain premises, such as banks, churches, courts, theaters, and hospitals. If convicted of possessing a firearm in one of these areas, you will be faced with a misdemeanor and possibly 90 days in jail with up to $100 in fines.
If you have ever been convicted of a felony, it is unlawful to possess a firearm. Pursuant to MCL 750.224(f), you will be facing a 5-year felony and fines up to $5,000. It is for this reason that you contact an experienced gun crimes lawyer in Michigan immediately.
