Under Florida Statutes ? 775.087, the use of a firearm in the commission of a crime triggers certain mandatory minimum penalties. This law was put into effect by the Florida Legislature in an effort to curtail or eliminate the use of a gun or firearm during the commission of a crime.

If a firearm is brandished or displayed during the commission of an aggravated assault, a three-year mandatory minimum prison sentence must be imposed. A three-year sentence must also be imposed if a person is a convicted felon and in actual physical possession of a firearm.

The display of a gun during the commission of a robbery, battery or burglary will trigger a ten-year mandatory prison sentence. If a bullet is discharged, a mandatory minimum sentence of twenty years must be imposed. If an alleged victim suffers serious bodily injury, the mandatory sentence is twenty five years in prison. If a victim of a gun crime dies, a mandatory life sentence must be imposed.

A mandatory minimum sentence is a sentence that must be imposed, not even the judge can impose a lesser sentence! If a defendant is sentenced under this law, they will not qualify for gain time or any form of early release.

If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime that involves the use of a gun or firearm, you must contact an experienced criminal attorney. The allegations in this case are very serious and you must employ a very aggressive defense to protect your rights. Call Attorney Bryant today to schedule a free consultation.
