In some situations, it may be difficult for the prosecution to pursue or prove a weapons crime case. This is due to the fact that the intent of the defendant is a key part of the charges. To be convicted of committing some type of weapons crime, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intentionally made the attempt to or actually committed a weapons crime. If a weapons charge case goes to court, there is often no recovery of losses for the plaintiff because a judgment has ordered prison or jail time.
