When can I face a UUW charge?

Unlawful use of a weapon charge can be issued for a variety of reasons such as discharging a weapon in a home or public place, having a loaded firearm while intoxicated, discharging a firearm in or at a vehicle, to name a few.

Some common weapons offenses include:

  • Gun possession
  • Possession of a firearm by a felon
  • Possession of an assault weapon
  • Illegal weapon possession
  • Brandishing a firearm
  • Discharging a firearm
  • Sales of a firearm
  • Use of a weapon during a crime

A common UUW charge in St. Louis is when an individual is found carrying a concealed weapon on either their person or in their vehicle and that weapon is deemed capable of lethal use. These weapons can range, with the most common being a gun or knife.

Our experienced attorneys will evaluate your UUW charges to determine if the following occurred during the discovery of the weapon:

  • Did law enforcement have reasonable cause for searching your person or vehicle?
  • Was your vehicle seized when the weapon was discovered?
  • Did the police follow the St. Louis Inventory Search protocol upon your vehicles seizure?
  • Did any additional violations related to the seizure of evidence occur?

These are just a few of the questions our seasoned attorneys will ask during your consultation. It is important to know that anyone that has been convicted of a felony is legally incapable of owning a firearm. This is essential to disclose to your defense attorneys at Millikan Wright, LLC as soon as possible.
