Firearm Possession While Under The Influence
Defending Against Gun Charges at Trial and on Appeal
Under G. L. c. 269, § 10H, it is illegal to carry a loaded firearm while under the influence of liquor, drugs, or glue vapor. It is also illegal to constructively possess a loaded firearm in a vehicle while under the influence of liquor, drugs, or glue vapor.
This law seeks to ensure that those who hold a gun license carry a firearm responsively. The failure to be a responsible person will likely result in the loss of your firearm license. Any gun conviction is serious because it has collateral consequences affecting your future.
You are not just charged with just any crime, you are facing a gun crime. Why wouldn't you seek out a criminal defense lawyer focused on gun law?

Meticulous preparation and review of the facts alleged and the extensive body relevant gun law available is necessary to break down the prosecutor's case--at trial or on appeal.
No two gun cases are the same. Identifying and challenging the most minute details can change the outcome of your case. Protect yourself and your future. To learn more, call 978-846-5184 Attorney William Driscoll today.
