I HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH A WEAPON OR FIREARMS VIOLATION. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

A weapon or firearms violation can occur if you are caught committing or attempting to commit a crime and you have a weapon or firearm in your possession, or if you are caught carrying a concealed weapon or firearm on or near your body without a permit.

Florida Statute §790 covers weapons and firearms.

The Statute defines a weapon to include the following items: dirk (long thrusting dagger), knife, metallic/brass knuckles, billie (baton/club), tear gas gun, chemical weapon or device, or other deadly weapon. In Florida, common pocket knives, plastic knives, or blunt-bladed table knives are not considered weapons under this Statute.

The Statute defines a firearm to include any weapon which will, is designed to, or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive. This does not include antique firearms, unless the antique firearm is used in the commission of a crime.

WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR POSSESSION OF WEAPONS AND FIREARMS WITHOUT A LICENSE?

  • The charge for carrying a concealed weapon is a first degree misdemeanor and can land you in jail for up to one year and a $1000 fine.
  • The charge for carrying a concealed firearm is a third degree felony, which comes with up to 15 years in prison, and a $5,000 fine.
  • It is against the law in Florida to openly carry a firearm. Open carrying of a weapon is considered a second degree misdemeanor and is punishable by up to 60 days in jail, or a $500 fine.

POSSESSION OF A FIREARM BY A CONVICTED FELON

It is against the law in Florida for anyone who has been convicted of a felony to own, possess or carry a firearm, ammunition, or electronic weapon, or to carry a concealed weapon. Violating this law could result in a second degree felony with a sentence of up to 15 years of imprisonment, and a $10,000 fine. For habitual felony offenders that meet certain criteria, the sentence could be up to 30 years of imprisonment for possession of a firearm.

The most Responsive and Trustworthy Attorney I’ve ever hired.

Jessica was very professional and knowledgeable in the law of DUI's Even though we did not win the case, she gave it here best shot and gave me the best recommendations. Jessica was a former prosecutor and now and defense lawyer. She knows and understands both sides of the judicial system which is a big plus.

Let's hope I don't ever need her services again but if I do, she will be the first person I contact. I would also recommend her to any and all friends that need her services. She is very passionate about the law and it shows in the court room. She is an outstanding attorney.

I read the reviews on here prior to hiring Jessica as my attorney. The reviews are not wrong. She is an excellent attorney. She does her research and is very professional. She let me know what to expect and understood my concerns. I hired her for a case that was less than a week away and she blew it out of the park. Thank you Jessica, that takes a real professional to be prepared that quickly. Hopefully I don't have to use you again, but if I need an attorney, I will be right back to you! I will also recommend you to any of my friends or associates who need a good lawyer with your expertise.

An attorney that not only cares about her clients but she also fights for justice!!

Ms. Jessica Travis is a fighter. She will not stop until she gets the justice you deserve. The felony I was charged with had two counts against me. I was facing 5 years on each count. Ms. Travis saw that the charges against me were not as what they seemed, and she worked day and night on my case. As we went to trial my charges were dropped down to probation and community service. I thought my life was over until she accepted my case. I have never met anyone that cared so much for my rights. She promised me that she would do her best to get the best deal and she did more than that. I am now working full time and my wife and I are finally getting our life back. Thank you Jessica for everything. If anyone of you need an defense attorney, Do not elsewhere. She will treat your case as if you were her only client. She is the best!!!

I’m so glad I was able to seek out her help . . .

I was recently involved in an auto accident in which a bicyclist ran into the side of my car. Even though I was not at fault, the FHP officer gave me a ticket and wanted to put four points on my license. I have a very clean driving record and have been driving for 15 years. Needless to say, I was very upset. Jessica helped resolve the situation such that the ticket was dismissed and no points were put on my license. I'm so glad I was able to seek out her help and I highly recommend her services as a traffic attorney. Thank you Jessica.
