Anytime there is a weapon involved in the commission of a crime, matters automatically become more serious. Under Texas law, you are less likely to receive probation. Prison is more likely and, if you are incarcerated, your sentence will probably be longer.

Weapons offenses are serious matters. At the Law Offices of J. Charles Bunk, we take them seriously. Our San Antonio law firm represents people throughout South Texas who have been accused of weapons offenses.

Many of the theft crime cases we handle are charged as "aggravated" crimes because a weapon was involved. Under the law, a weapon can be nearly any object, including a gun, knife, pipe or stick. It does not even matter whether you use it or not. Just displaying a weapon can be enough to make the charges you face more serious.

Building Strong Defenses for People Accused of Weapons Offenses

We use our years of experience to achieve the best possible results for our clients. We often partner with private investigators, accident reconstructionists and mitigation experts to help us build strong defenses. These experts can uncover critical evidence to present to prosecutors, judges and juries regarding your case.

Experts can also testify as to your mental capacity or to other factors that can affect the outcome of your case. For example, it may be acceptable under the law to use force to protect yourself or someone you love from harm.
