Charged with Concealing a Weapon in Alberta?
Carrying or using a weapon can land you with a weapons offense and can have you arrested. There are two major categories involved around a weapons charge. First, a concealed weapon or using a concealed weapon is considered a criminal offense by law. A second category of weapons offense happens when you are either carrying or using a weapon to commit a crime.

- Armed robbery charges

What Penalties Am I Facing with Assault With a Weapon Charge?
Carrying a gun or any weapon – like brass knuckles, knives, or even a blunt object – can have the accused waiting in a jail cell until such time a trial date can be set. This can take weeks or even months; however, a crime involving robbery, where a deadly weapon is used, you can end up with a sentence with a minimum 4-year jail term. More so, this can happen if using or carrying a weapon in the commission of the crime.
