What Is Penalty for CCW?

The penalty for CCW depends on the charge.  CCW is shorthand for Carrying a Concealed Weapon and is typically a Class A misdemeanor in Kentucky.  If the defendant has a prior felony conviction, the charge will be enhanced to a Class D felony.  Class A misdemeanors are punishable by up to 12 months in jail, $500 fine or both.  Class D felonies carry 1-5 years in prison.  Note: CCW charges also typically involve forfeiture of the weapon. The elements for CCW in Kentucky are spelled out in KRS 527.020 - Carrying concealed deadly weapon. (1) A person is guilty of carrying a concealed weapon when he or she carries concealed a firearm or other deadly weapon on or about his or her person. Also, if the person is a convicted felony they can be charged separately with the offense of Possession of Handgun by Felon, a Class C felony.  Felons are not permitted to own, possess or carry a handgun within the Commonwealth of Kentucky. If you have been charged with CCW or any other crime in Northern Kentucky, contact the office of Bouldin Law Firm and schedule a consultation with Micahel Bouldin.  Email at [email protected] or call 859-581-6453.
