Weapon Offenses in Miami

Aggressive Defense Attorneys Serving Miami-Dade, FL

Weapon crimes involve any illegal act with a weapon. Whether the weapon itself is legal or illegal, when handled in an illegal manner, the offender can face severe penalties. Chapter 790 of the Florida Statutes defines who is allowed to openly carry a weapon and who is permitted to carry a concealed weapon.

Florida is known for handling weapon crimes in a very severe manner because they are viewed as serious offenses. If charged, you will need to retain the resources and skills offered by our Miami criminal defense attorneys. Contact us today!

Types of Weapon Charges

Most weapon offenses are categorized as felonies. Penalties for a conviction, therefore, are very strict. Possession of an illegal firearm is a serious, yet common, weapon charge in Florida. Penalties will depend on the scenario surrounding the offense and any aggravating factors involved.

Carrying of a concealed weapon is a misdemeanor of the first degree. People who carry a concealed firearm can be charged with a felony of the third degree. Sale and delivery of firearms is discussed in § 790.065 of the Florida Statutes. Only licensed manufacturers can sell or deliver to another licensed individual.
