Weapons Charges in Florida

Weapons crimes in Florida cover a range of situations in which an individual improperly purchases, possesses, or uses a firearm. A variety of state and federal laws govern the purchase, possession, and use of weapons and firearms. Violating any of these statutes can result in criminal charges.

Anita has represented clients charged with weapons crimes that include:

  • Carrying a concealed weapon
  • Improper exhibition of a firearm
  • Delinquent or felon in possession of a firearm

  • Use of a weapon in the commission of another crime
  • Robbery with a firearm
  • Home invasion robbery with a firearm

Using a Firearm in the Commission of a Crime

When a firearm is involved in the commission of a crime or forms the basis of a crime, the State often seeks the harshest penalty the law allows. Florida law punishes weapon offenses severely, requiring certain weapon offenses to carry a minimum mandatory sentence. For example, the crime of Felon in Possession of a Firearm can carry a 3-year minimum mandatory prison sentence.

Whether a firearm or deadly weapon was used “in the commission” of a crime is also an important determination when evaluating the severity of penalties you may be facing. If a crime is committed with the use of a firearm or deadly weapon, you may be facing enhanced penalties, including a minimum mandatory prison sentence of 10 years or more.

Minimum Mandatory Sentences

The state of Florida imposes harsh penalties and mandatory minimum sentences for specific offenses that are committed with a firearm. In addition, the state has a 10/20/Life statute.

An accused can face minimum mandatory sentences that include:

  • Ten years – Possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime
  • Twenty years – if a firearm was discharged during the commission of the alleged offense
  • Twenty-five years to life – When someone is seriously injured or killed as a result of the use of a firearm during the commission of the criminal offense

Due to the serious nature of these charges and possible penalties, it is important to seek representation from an experienced St. Petersburg weapons crimes lawyer.
