What is a Robbery with a Firearm Crime in Florida?

Robbery with a Firearm occurs when a person takes money or other property from someone else and uses violence or force while in ownership of a firearm. According to Florida Law, a firearm is a weapon that is designed to shoot a bullet by the action of an explosive. To be charged with the crime of Robbery with a Firearm one does not necessarily need to use the firearm and will be charged for simply having it in their possession such as under their belt or even their backpack. To learn more about what might constitute a robbery with a firearm charge in South Florida, contact our firm to speak with a knowledgeable attorney.


Crimes committed in possession or control of a firearm are penalized more harshly than crimes that do not involve a firearm due to the potential harm or death that can be caused to another civilian. 

For example, a Robbery charge where the offender did not carry a firearm is a second-degree felony. A second-degree felony carries consequences of up to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. 

A Robbery charge where the offender carried a firearm is a first-degree felony. A first-degree felony carries consequences of up to 30 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.

Robbery with a Firearm Defenses 

  • No Participation in the Crime: If you were charged with the crime of Robbery with a Firearm and were simply present at the time of the crime but had no involvement, you cannot be lawfully charged with the crime. One of the factors that the State needs to prove for the conviction of Robbery of a Firearm to be valid is the intent to deprive or permanently remove property from another individual. If you were simply present while your friend decided to rob someone at gunpoint that does not make you the individual who committed the robbery and therefore cannot be charged with the crime. 
  • Mistaken Identity: The person who claims they have been robbed with a deadly weapon may have been robbed by someone who is not the accused and may be uncertain and mistaken about the identity of the person. Eyewitnesses of the alleged crime may have identified you as the wrong person. If you have been charged with the crime of Robbery with a Firearm and were not present during the occurrence of the alleged crime, the defense of mistaken identity can be used to fight the charges against you.

    In one of the most stressful times in my life, Rossen Law Firm was there for me. Leaving no stone unturned they provided patience and knowledge in every detail of my case. I’m very thankful and proud of this law firm family and especially of my lawyer, Scott Simmons for guiding, defending and helping me in every way possible. He and this law firm family come highly recommended from personal experience!!!

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
