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.

Testimonials

Client-Centered Legal Represntation
    "I Couldn't Be More Pleased!"
    I couldn't be more pleased with Mr. Gigstad's services. Contacting a law firm you typically are faced with leaving multiple messages and dealing with secretaries that might not always know the best route to take. From the very first time I contacted Roberts office he personally was always very quick to respond to email and explain exactly what need to be done in my case. You never want the need for a lawyer but if the need arises again I will not hesitate to contact Mr. Gigstad again for his services.

    "Would Highly Recommend Robert to Others"
    I was facing a second DUI and was very much dreading the impact this would make on my professional career and near future goals. Robert walked me through each part of the process and made sure I understood what to expect through the court process. He was very professional and made sure that no stone was turned. The end result, unbelievably was my charges were all dismissed. He was able to find an important information that lead to the dismissal. Would highly recommend Robert to others.
    Happy Client

    "Mr. Gigstad Was Able to Help Calm Me down and Get Everything Worked out for Me with My DUI"
    I was freaked out when I came to him, but Mr. Gigstad was able to help calm me down and get everything worked out for me with my DUI. I hope I don't get in trouble and need him again, but I would gladly recommend his services.

    "Very Respectful and Understanding Throughout the Process"
    I contacted Gigstad Law Office when I found myself being charged with a DUI in the state of Kansas. Although I've used other lawyers in the past for other types of legal situations, I've found, much to my disappointment, that they can often be flaky, or lacking in timely communication and responsiveness. I found that Mr. Gigstad was just the opposite. His rates are reasonable, he didn't drop the ball when I needed immediate legal advice, and was very respectful and understanding throughout the process. I would definitely recommend his services.

    "Great to work with!"
    Mr. Gigstad was upfront and professional about what I would be facing from the very beginning. He worked to help me understand the situation and found the best available outcome for me, considering. I would hope if I ever need legal representation again I would be in the hands of someone as professional and experienced as Mr. Gigstad.
