Florida’s 10-20-life laws are strict for people convicted of a weapons charge. If you are convicted of possessing a firearm during the commission of a crime, then you are automatically facing at least 10 years in prison, even if you didn’t show or discharge the weapon.
If you discharge a firearm during the commission of a felony or shoot someone, then you may be facing mandatory 20-year to life sentence.
