Free Consultation with a Felon in Possession Attorney
One of the more common gun crimes in Utah is when a felon, i.e., someone who has been convicted of a felony, is in possession of a firearm. Utah law is very specific that persons who have been convicted of a felony cannot possess, purchase, transfer, use, or sell firearms. Anyone who has been convicted of a felony and who thereafter possesses, purchases, transfers, uses, or sells a firearm will face additional felony charges and should immediately get a felon in possession attorney.
In addition to convicted felons, there are a host of other persons who are restricted from owning firearms including:
- Anyone who uses illegal drugs;
- Those who possess certain illegal drugs;
- The criminally insane;
- Illegal immigrants;
- Anyone who has been dishonorably discharged from the military;
- Those who renounce their U.S. citizenship
