Our firm was able to convince the prosecutor that Armando was acting in lawful self-defense under Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law. The case was dismissed within 30 days, and Armando’s gun was returned to him.
Armando was looking at a 3 year mandatory minimum jail sentence and a maximum of 5 years.
Armando A. was pulling into a gas station and came very close to hitting another vehicle that was not in its lane. He had heated words with the driver and then parked his car to go into the convenience store. The two men in the vehicle he almost hit parked, exited their car and started walking over towards Armando cursing and making threatening gestures. Outnumbered, Armando felt threatened and holstered his gun to his hip. (He had a concealed weapon permit for the gun). He had a few more words with the men and then went into the convenience store to order food. As he was waiting for his food inside the store, a cop came in and approached Armando. The two men outside told the cop that Armando had waved the gun at them. He was handcuffed and taken directly to jail and booked.
We proved that Armando was acting in self-defense.
