Get 18 Years of Criminal Trial Experience on Your Side

The Florida Legislature takes firearms and weapons offenses cases very seriously. Their intent to prosecute these cases seriously can be seen in the penalties that include minimum-mandatory sanctions and the 10-20-LIFE statute. ‚Äč

‚ÄčAnytime a firearm is used in the commission of a felony, or is the subject matter of the crime, Prosecutors will often seek the harshest penalties available to them. If you are accused of using a firearm in the course of a robbery, assault or drug trafficking case, the State may seek increased periods of incarceration through enhancements on the criminal punishment scoresheet. Furthermore, simply being in possession of a firearm while as a convicted felon could subject you to a minimum-mandatory period of incarceration.

10-20-LIFE

Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony will also subject you to the 10-20-LIFE law. Pursuant to Florida Statute §775.087, any person who is convicted of an enumerated offense is subject to a minimum mandatory sentence of:
  • Ten (10) years if they were in possession of a firearm;
  • Twenty (20) years if the firearm was discharged during the course of the crime; and
  • 25 (twenty-five) years to LIFE if anyone was seriously injured or dies as a result of the discharge
