Stringent laws to deal with gun charge convictions
The State of Florida imposes strict guidelines for gun owners with mandatory registration for any type of gun purchase. Individuals with an active domestic violence charge, drug addicts, mentally unstable individuals, felons, and those under the age of 16 are not permitted gun ownership and registration. Persons that fall in any of these categories can be charged with illegal weapons possession, stiff fines and prison terms if convicted. Gun charges can be classified as a misdemeanor or felony depending on the severity of the offense. In such circumstances you need the assistance of a lawyer with the ability to provide the strongest possible defense. Often, these charges are brought on an individual after a search conducted by law enforcement authorities on the property. At Heather Harris Law our criminal defense attorneys are well experienced in determining areas where a search could have been conducted in an illegal or unconstitutional manner. This gives the defendant the opportunity to have the evidence dismissed or partially suppressed.
