Coxwell & Associates Arms Trafficking

Arms TRafficking

Have you been arrested for arms trafficking in or around Jackson, Mississippi? This is not a crime that the State of Mississippi takes lightly. In fact, depending on the weapons and ammunition you’re being charged with having trafficked, you could basically be spending the rest of your life behind bars. It doesn’t matter if you have any prior criminal history or not. This is not the type of charge that goes away easily. The illegal smuggling and trafficking of weapons can land you in hot water, quick. If you have been arrested or a loved one has been arrested for gun smuggling, you need to get a defense lawyer A.S.A.P.

Arms Trafficking in Mississippi

Smuggling Weapons
Whether you’ve been charged with selling a few guns illegally or you’ve been implicated in a large-scale smuggling ring, you could be facing some pretty stiff penalties in local, state or Federal courts. Gun running and the illegal sale of firearms has become a hot topic in Mississippi and across the country. Even more serious than local charges, is if the operation you’re charged with being a part of has ties across state lines.

Arrested for Gun Running 

After an arms trafficking arrest in Jackson, you need to get in touch with a lawyer immediately. This isn’t a simple DUI or battery case. Arms trafficking cases can quickly become complicated. You could be facing hotshot federal prosecutors who have no higher mission than getting convictions, at all costs. You need to have an experienced and proven defense attorney on your side. You’re only going to get one shot to beat this, and you need all the help you can get. Gun smuggling cases don’t go away easily.

Not All Arms Trafficking Cases are Created Equal 

The sad truth is that not all arms trafficking cases are created equal. It’s okay for the U.S. military to deal in weapons, but it’s not okay for the average Joe. In fact, many government agencies, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has a long and sordid history of weapons trafficking. Unfortunately, nobody is going to bring that up during your trial. Judges may not take your side of the story into account either. Whether you’re guilty or innocent, the fact of the matter remains that an arms trafficking arrest and conviction can ruin your life.
