Orlando Firearm Offense Attorney

Defense Against Gun Charges

The Florida Legislature takes firearms and weapons charges very seriously. These charges carry extremely severe penalties. A defendant may be subject to mandatory minimum prison sentence pursuant to the notorious “10/20/Life” statute. The punishment is usually more severe if the person has a prior criminal record, especially a felony conviction.

The 10/20/Life Statute

Using a firearm in conjunction with another crime usually results in more severe penalties. The 10/20/Life statute establishes mandatory minimum sentences for situations involving the use of a weapon to commit a crime. If a person simply carried a gun while committing a crime, a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence is imposed, while a 20-year sentence is given if the gun was fired. If a person was injured or killed with the firearm, the mandatory minimum sentence is 25 years to life in prison.

We defend all types of firearm, gun, and weapon charges, which range from improper exhibition of a weapon to first-degree murder. Our law firm will have an attorney make a thorough review and assessment of the case, so we are in the best position to develop, identify, and handle all appropriate defenses. Defenses may include an inspection of how the police collected and preserved evidence in your case, whether the identity is credible, whether there was an unlawful search and seizure, whether the police preserved items for fingerprints (or in some cases for gun powder residue), and whether DNA analysis is involved.

Additionally, we thoroughly inquire in the background and possible alternative motives that any witness or alleged victim may have in accusing our clients with a crime, and we are not shy about exposing this to a jury or judge.
