A gun charge can disrupt and permanently impact your life. While there are many different types of gun-related offenses and associated penalties in Florida, ranging from misdemeanors to felony charges, the outcome of any such case can depend on a range of factors. These legal matters should not be approached without a strong defense.
If you are facing gun charges, your next call should be to an expert Wellington gun lawyer. Our tenacious defense team at Rossen Law Firm can vigilantly review every detail and event leading up to your charge, find any areas of weakness or vulnerability in the prosecution’s case, review evidence, speak with witnesses, and construct a complete and tailored defense specific to the facts of your case.
There are many forms of gun charges someone can be charged with. Several commonly charged gun offenses include:
Certain elements can increase the severity of a gun charge and the associated penalties it may carry, such as when the accused has a former felony conviction on their record or is alleged to have had a gun in their possession while executing another serious crime, such as burglary, a home invasion, or aggravated assault. Working with an expert gun lawyer is essential when fighting any type of gun charge in Wellington.
Given the broad scope of possible gun charges that someone could face depending on the alleged underlying circumstances involved, the potential penalties that could accompany a conviction are equally as varied. In some cases, a conviction could mean anywhere from several years to decades in jail, not to mention fines ranging from $1,000 on the low end to tens of thousands of dollars or more for certain felony gun charges.
Moreover, when the alleged gun offense is attached to an accusation that the individual used the gun while committing a particular type of violent crime, such convictions can carry a mandatory minimum prison sentence spanning from 10 years all the way up to life. An expert Wellington lawyer can help avoid these criminal penalties by asserting a robust defense on your behalf.
A conviction for a gun offense may not only subject you to severe consequences in the form of incarceration and high financial penalties, but the outcome of such a conviction can follow you for many years, even after any sentence has been served. A conviction can impact virtually every aspect of your life, from your ability to get into certain educational institutions to obtaining gainful employment to even being able to exert fundamental rights such as being able to vote.
