Brooklyn Criminal Defense Attorney Discusses if You Can be Charged for Carrying a Knife
As an experienced Brooklyn Criminal Defense Attorney, I am often asked by clients about if you can be charged with just carrying a knife. In New York, you can be charged for carrying a knife if the knife is over four inches. There’s administrative code violations that carry a criminal penalty if that blade is over four inches.
I’ve handled many cases in the state of New York for people who have been in possession of weapons, especially knives, and there are many people who legitimately carry a knife for different legitimate purposes: for their work, for their hobbies, and they have been charged. I have successfully represented people with those charges so give me a call.
