Gadsden, Alabama is situated in the northeastern part of the state and is blessed by gorgeous natural surroundings. Gadsden is the county seat of Etowah county, and is home for approximately 37,000 Alabama citizens. Many of Gadsden's residents worked in the nearby Goodyear Tire and Rubber Plant and for the Republic Steel Corporation during the mid to late 1900's. Gadsden has always been famous for its location near 100 foot-tall Noccalula falls, which continues to attract visitors from all over the southeastern US. As a community that has prided itself on being family friendly and an all-around good place to live, Gadsden was recognized as such when it was named an All-American City by the National Civic League.
A criminal charge can take many forms, and the circumstances of every arrest leading to a weapons charge are always different. Possessing a weapon on school grounds, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, and breaking and entering are all criminal offenses in the state of Alabama. The previously listed crimes by no means constitute a comprehensive list of all the possible offenses under the state's penal code, so if you are presently uncertain about your legal rights, you should speak with a Gadsden criminal attorney right away. A lawyer will educate on the charges being levied against you, and can devise a prudent course of action.
Many people charged with crimes are victims of unfortunate circumstances beyond their control. Perhaps you were pulled over driving another person's vehicle and did not know that narcotics were under the passenger's seat. Maybe you forgot about the pocket knife or box cutter in your jacket pocket when you attended a PTA meeting. Regardless of the nature of the events that led to you run afoul of Alabama's laws, a lawyers knowledge and advice gives you an advantage over those who are unrepresented during all stages of the criminal court process. Because the circumstances surrounding every legal case is different, results can never be guaranteed. However, a skilled advocate who knows the law and is familiar with trial procedures gives you the best shot to resolve your case favorably.
