Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon
If you have been arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, you probably do not need anyone to tell you the charge is serious. Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is a felony offense of the second degree. A conviction on this charge carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence of three years. Various enhancements may extend that to five years — and that does not even address what you may be facing if you were still on parole for another crime. A conviction on possession of a firearm by a convicted felon may also result in fines of up to $10,000.
