i was arrested while en route to work with a loaded handgun registered to me in a back pack in vehicle and charged with unlawfully carrying of a pistol.have a court date coming up and would like to know what i may be facing.cant afford an attorney and hoping maybe you could help by giving some insight into the penalties.?
Unlawful carrying of a pistol carries a sentence of up to a year and a fine of $1000.
Even though finances are an issue for you, I would highly recommend retaining an attorney to assist you with your defense.
Best of luck.
