Understanding the 10-20-Life Law

The Florida 10-20-Life Law

Miami Criminal Defense Attorney

In Florida, firearm offenses are harshly prosecuted. This is evidenced in Florida's 10-20-Life law, also called "Use a Gun and You're Done!" Under the 10-20-Life law, harsh mandatory minimum sentences are imposed for defendants who use guns in the commission of crimes.

This law covers the following offenses in particular:

  • Felon in possession of a gun - mandatory minimum 3 year prison sentence
  • Brandishing a gun in the commission of a crime - mandatory minimum 10 year sentence
  • Discharging a gun in the commission of a crime - mandatory minimum 20 year sentence
  • Injuring or killing another person in the commission of a crime, by discharging a firearm - 25 years to life in state prison

Florida's 10-20-Life law may leave you facing 10, 20 or 25 years in a state prison for the offense, or possibly lifetime imprisonment. This is nothing that should be dealt with lightly.
