Gun Crime Charges Attorney
State Attorneys’ Offices throughout Florida aggressively prosecute firearm charges. Moreover, certain weapons offenses carry harsh prison sentences. Florida’s 10-20-Life law requires, for instance, a mandatory sentence when a firearm is used during the commission of certain enumerated offenses, such as carjacking or drug trafficking. The mere presence of a firearm mandates a 10-year minimum sentence. If the firearm is discharged, this minimum sentence doubles to a 20-year minimum. Finally, if some is shot and killed or injured, the mandatory minimum escalates to 25-years to life. .
We have experience in a wide array of weapon offense charges, such as:
- Improper Exhibition of a Firearm (Fla. Stat. § 790.10)
- Carrying a Concealed Weapon (Fla. Stat. § 790.01)
- Throwing/Shooting Deadly Missiles (Fla. Stat. § 790.19)
If you have been arrested for any of these or other weapons-related crimes, or any others, you must speak with a capable criminal defense attorney to protect your rights. Michael’s consultations are free and confidential.
