Firearm Possession Charges in Broward County
Under Florida law, most firearm offenses are considered a felony offense. Criminal charges involving firearms and other deadly weapons have the potential to be extremely serious. In Broward County or Fort Lauderdale a law enforcement officer may make an arrest if he or she has probable cause that a person is carrying a concealed weapon. For example, carrying a concealed firearm is a third degree felony with a fine up to $5,000 and up to 5 years in state prison.
There are other criminal offenses which may be associated with firearms: aggravated battery, aggravated assault, murder, burglary, robbery, battery on a law enforcement officer, and others. All of these have the potential to be serious offenses. These can result in years or even life in prison if one is convicted. Under Florida's 10-20-Life law, offenders who brandish or discharge a firearm while committing a crime may face mandatory minimum sentences of 10 or 20 years, respectively.
