Brookfield Possession of a Firearm While Intoxicated Lawyer

Penalties for Carrying a Firearm while Under the Influence of an Intoxicant

If you are caught carrying or operating a gun while under the influence of an intoxicant (such as alcohol, marijuana, or restricted controlled substances), you could be facing serious and life-changing penalties. Under the influence means, in this case, drinking enough alcohol to impair the clear judgement and steady hand needed to safely handle a firearm.

Intoxicated possession of a firearm is a Class A misdemeanor in Wisconsin. Penalties include:

  • Up to 9 months in jail
  • Up to $10,00 fine
  • Or both

Gun charges often get paired with drunk driving charges when you are pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence, and the law officer learns there is a firearm in the vehicle.

If you’ve gotten a DUI while carrying a concealed or unconcealed firearm, contact our experienced drunk driving lawyer for a free legal consultation. We have a reputation for getting charges reduced, or dropped entirely, for misdemeanors involving firearms and alcohol.
