Weapons Charges Defense in Miami, Broward and Hialeah


In Florida, there are several different types of weapons charges, some of which include:
• Unlawful possession of a firearm
• Illegal sale of a firearm
• Carrying a concealed firearm
• Unlawful discharge of a firearm
• Manufacturing of firearms
• Using a firearm while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
• Brandishing a firearm
• Juvenile in possession of weapon
• Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon


In general, any time a firearm is transported or delivered across state lines, a violation of a gun law becomes a federal crime. Penalties for violations of federal weapons laws include a prison sentence of at least ten years and fines as high as $250,000.

There is a three year minimum mandatory prison sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Florida has also enacted a 10/20/Life policy that has had enormous ramifications when a firearm is used in the commission of a crime. This means that if the offender has a gun during commission of a crime, the mandatory minimum sentence is 10 years; if the weapon is fired during a crime the minimum sentence is 20 years, and if someone is injured or killed by the weapon during a crime, the mandatory minimum is 25 years to life in prison.


If you are charged with a Firearm Crime or Violation, or any other criminal offense, it is important to be well informed regarding the charges against you, your legal rights, options which may be available to you, viable defense strategies, and if the case goes to trial, aggressive defense of your legal rights and freedoms.
