HOW DOES USING A FIREARM CHANGE THE CHARGES I AM FACING?
In Florida, whenever a firearm is used as part of a criminal act, the 10-20-life law is applied:
10 years — Simply carrying a firearm during a crime can secure a 10-year jail term.
20 years — Discharging the weapon during a crime can secure a 20-year sentence.
Life — Someone being injured by the firearm during a crime can secure a life sentence.
Further, being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm or being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition is a felony charge with a 15-year sentence.
