Representation for People Facing Weapons Charges in Jacksonville, FL

gun crime in floridaBeing arrested for a weapons crime creates a wave of financial, personal, and professional burdens to overcome. Your life can not only feel like it’s being put on hold, but also as if it’s being taken away from you. If a person has been arrested, it’s not acceptable for them to be treated as though they don’t have any rights, because they do.

Gun possession and license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm are complex issues that have always been a major point of concern in our nation. A person arrested for a weapons charge in Florida is heavily prosecuted, giving them all the more reason to have a strong defense. The Jacksonville defense attorneys at Farah & Farah work hard to build effective cases for our clients to help them obtain justice. If you would like more information about how we can assist you, please call us at (904) 263-4610. for a free, confidential consultation.

What You’re Up Against

Whether or not you agree with the laws set in place for the right to bear arms, weapon crimes are often charged in addition to other offenses, such as theft, domestic violence and drug trafficking. Even if you’ve only been charged with a weapons crime, the consequences are still serious. A gun offense conviction may result in a lengthy prison or jail sentence, a criminal record, fines, probation, and loss of employment.

If an individual has been convicted of a weapons violation in the past and is convicted again, he or she may face more severe penalties, such as being charged with a first degree felony.

Because being convicted of a crime often comes with a social stigma, a person’s career may be put on hold or professional opportunities compromised. Relationships with family and friends may also be placed in jeopardy.

Preparing for a Solid Defense in Florida

Fear can be a defendant’s worst enemy in a gun or weapons crime case. It’s extremely important to consider all of your legal options before entering a plea deal or pleading guilty or not guilty. Because your attorney has been down this road before, he or she will be prepared to provide you with the specific information that you need to make an informed decision.

One of the biggest aspects of a weapons crime case is the evidence. No matter how intimidating your experience with law enforcement, all of the evidence for your case may not have been revealed to you. A defense lawyer will conduct a detailed investigation to identify any missing evidence so that a lawful request is submitted to help strengthen your case.

Weapon Violations

Common weapons charges include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Trespassing on property with a firearm or dangerous weapon.
  • Displaying a firearm or weapon within 1,000 feet of a school.

  • Possession of a firearm on a school premises.
  • Trespassing on property with a firearm or dangerous weapon.
