Criminal Defense Lawyer in New York City
Law-abiding citizens who carry tools or knives are sometimes arrested for
criminal possession of a weapon. In many instances, the person is arrested for carrying a gravity knife
or switchblade knife that is not actually illegal. Others might not have
any idea that they may be committing a technical violation of the law.
Oftentimes, the items alleged to be weapons are purchased at credible
retailers, including reputable chains and Internet merchants.
