Unsworn Falsification Lawyer in Reading
Experienced Representation to Protect Your Freedom
Those convicted of certain crimes can no longer lawfully own a gun. When you apply for gun ownership in Pennsylvania, you are required to list any crimes of which you were convicted so that authorities know whether or not it is legal to give you a firearm. If you are accused of falsifying those records, you could suffer criminal penalties. Defend yourself against these charges by calling the Reading unsworn falsification lawyer at Emkey Law Firm. We have over a decade of award-winning experience.

Penalties for a Conviction
Law enforcement takes these kinds of allegations seriously. If you were charged with falsifying records in order to obtain a firearm, you could face a second-degree misdemeanor, leading to a mandatory minimum fine of $1,000 and a mark on your permanent record. There are also perjury conditions that could affect you. A criminal history can make it hard to find work, housing, and loan opportunities.
Unsworn falsification means misleading public officials by:
- Making false written statements you know aren’t true
- Altering or forging an official document
- Submitting or suggesting a specimen, map, or other object known to be false
