Carrying Dangerous Weapons in Michigan

Weapons – Carrying Dangerous Weapon With Unlawful Intent

Carrying dangerous weapon with unlawful intent is a serious felony that can send you to prison if convicted. The Prosecution must prove first, that you possessed the object, second, that the object was a dangerous weapon, and third, that you carried the dangerous weapon with intent to harm or threaten another person.

Depending on the facts, the best criminal defense attorneys will challenge the prosecutor on one or all of these elements. Many objects can constitute a dangerous weapon, not just a pistol or knife or firearm. Any object that can be used to assault a person can be considered a dangerous weapon.
