The Penalties of a Conviction
If you are facing a charge for possession of a firearm under the influence, you may suffer some severe penalties if you are convicted.
To secure a conviction, the state will have to prove one of the following beyond a reasonable doubt:
- You could not safely operate a firearm because you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- You had a BAC of .08 or more.
It is not uncommon for this charge to accompany a DUI charge. For example, if you were pulled over because a law enforcement officer suspected you were driving under the influence and, during the DUI investigation, your firearm was discovered, you may be charged with a DUI and possession of a firearm under the influence.
Moreover, this charge is a class A misdemeanor and, if convicted, you could face up to one year in jail. You may also be responsible for steep civil fines and your concealed carry license will likely be revoked for at least one year. If this is your second conviction, it may be revoked for three years.
