Attorneys Who Understand Florida’s Weapons Laws
Florida has strict laws regarding firearm possession. If you have been charged with a weapons offense, having a lawyer with the knowledge to represent you is essential.
McIntosh Law has represented many clients accused of gun crimes, including armed robbery and aggravated battery with a firearm since 1993. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and accomplished litigators who have received several not-guilty verdicts for these types of cases.
Using our team approach to defense, we will look at several factors, including self-defense, possession and ownership of the weapon in question, in order to build a strong case on your behalf.
Penalties For Weapons Charges
The 10-20-LIFE law defines sentencing for gun crime convictions. The law mandates:
- A minimum 10 years in prison for a felony conviction involving the possession of a firearm or destructive device
- A minimum 20-year prison term when the firearm is discharged
- A minimum 25 years to life if someone is seriously injured or killed
- A minimum three years in prison for possession of a firearm by a felon
At McIntosh Law, we have extensive experience with cases involving the 10-20-LIFE law. Our attorneys will visit the crime scene as soon as possible to examine the evidence, including surveillance footage, and recreate the scene. We consult with firearm specialists to evaluate the accuracy of witness testimony and talk to any witnesses whom the police may have overlooked.
