The penalty for a weapons related charge in Florida can range from a misdemeanor to a minimum mandatory life sentence. If accused of an offense involving a weapon or a firearm you need the advice and counsel of an experienced criminal defense attorney. The Florida laws regarding weapons and firearms are complex, and designed to allow prosecutors to seek longer and mandatory sentences of up to life in prison for crimes involving weapons and firearms.
Florida law may require minimum mandatory prison sentences of up to 25 years to life for discharging a firearm and causing death or great bodily injury during the commission of certain felonies. In other words, if you used a gun, you could be done!
