Have you or someone you care about been charged with a violent or gun crime in fort pierce, port st. lucie, vero beach, stuart, or okeechobee? Federal and State Courts in Florida have some of the strictest violent crime and gun crime laws in the world. There are minimum mandatory sentences in many instances and they can be lengthy.
With respect to firearms, Florida is famous for it's 10/20/life laws and the federal system is equally notorious for it's section 924(c) laws. Both involve the allegation of using a firearm during the commission of a crime. The legislature has taken the sentencing discretion out of the hands of the judges in a large portion of these cases, leaving a lot of the power with the government.
