Gun Crimes Defense Expert in Ogden, Utah
Americans have the right to bear arms that is protected by the United States Constitution.
More constitutional rights enter the picture when you are arrested and charged with a gun crime.
Utah laws on gun control are more lenient compared to other states, but there are complex laws for owning, selling or carrying a weapon.
This leaves Utah residents confused about what is legal, and what is a crime, when it comes to carrying or using a weapon.
Have you been charged with a weapons-related case?
You could be charged with breaking either a state or federal law. In either case, you should take it seriously because guns are deadly weapons.
Gun charges and crimes committed with weapons carry severe penalties in all states and at the federal level, as well.
In Utah, an armed robbery conviction can get you a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
A simple gun discharge can result in a penalty of up to seven years of jail time.
Even if you have lawful permits to carry firearms, it doesn’t exempt you from facing serious charges if you are not familiar with the limitations of your license.
You need an expert gun crimes defense lawyer who knows and supports your Second Amendment rights.
Godfrey Law can provide defense strategies for state or federal gun laws.
Here are weapons-related cases that we can handle for you:
- Armed Robbery
- Homicide with a Gun
- Possession or Sale of Illegal Weapons
- Assault with a Deadly Weapon
- Carrying Concealed Weapon without a Permit
- Legal Discharge
These gun crimes carry lengthy jail sentences. Utah courts punish offenders severely, as they take gun crimes seriously.

Motions to Suppress
It is common for law enforcement officers to find weapons in the course of serving a search warrant or executing an arrest.
Searches and search warrants must be backed up by probable cause.
Your constitutional rights might have been violated if evidence was taken as a result of an unreasonable search and seizure.
We can help you file a motion to suppress in court.
