Penalties for Repeat Offenders

There are strict penalties for probation violators with a violent history. Florida's new Anti-Murder Act imposes strict sanctions for felony probation violators with a history of violent crimes, including holding suspects without bail until the judge determines whether they pose a danger to the community.

Other Florida weapons charge laws include:

  • 10 / 20 / Life for Crimes Involving Firearms – This law requires the judge to impose a 10-year prison sentence for anyone in actual possession of a firearm who is convicted for committing or attempting to commit a serious felony.
  • Three Strikes Law for Prior Convictions – This law requires the judge to impose a mandatory minimum prison sentence according to the degree of the felony for suspects convicted of a violent crime for the third time, if certain criteria apply.

At Fleming Law Group, we can protect your rights and run through possible defense strategies. We thoroughly investigate cases to find the details that prosecution and law enforcement have overlooked. Contact our weapons charge defense attorneys in St. Petersburg today to get started.
