What To Do After You Are Accused Of A Gun Charge
Whether the gun itself is legal or illegal, when handled in an illegal manner, the offender can face severe penalties. Chapter 790 of the Florida Statutes defines who is allowed to openly carry a gun or another weapon and who is permitted to carry a concealed weapon. Florida is known for handling gun crimes in a very severe manner. If charged, you will need to retain the resources and skills offered by proven Miami weapon charges attorneys such as ours at Beckham Solis, Attorneys at Law.
Understanding The Different Types Of Gun Charges
Most gun offenses are categorized as felonies. Penalties for a conviction, therefore, are very strict. The following are examples of weapon-related charges:
- Possession of an illegal firearm is a serious, yet common, weapon charge in Florida. Penalties will depend on the scenario surrounding the offense and any aggravating factors involved.
- Carrying a concealed weapon is a misdemeanor of the first degree. People who carry a concealed firearm can be charged with a felony of the third degree.
- Sale and delivery of firearms is discussed in § 790.065 of the Florida Statutes. Only licensed manufacturers can sell or deliver to another licensed individual.
