Defending Your Rights and Freedom

It does not matter if no one was hurt or the discharge was accidental — prosecutors can and do press charges. If you are convicted, you face a fine, the loss of your right to possess a firearm and concealed carry permit, and a possible jail sentence.

Charged With Wrongful Discharge of a Weapon?
Unlike many other criminal charges, it is difficult to bargain down a charge of wrongful discharge of a weapon. Nevertheless, there are potential defenses that could lead to the dismissal of the charge. Virginia law states that the handling of the weapon must be "reckless." Our attorneys will carefully examine the circumstances of your case to determine if your behavior truly meets this test. If necessary, we can bring in one or more experts in weapons handling and gun safety who can support your case.
Kearney, Freeman, Fogarty & Joshi, PLLC, will defend your rights and freedom every step of the way.
