In Florida, firearm offenses are harshly prosecuted. This is evidenced in Florida's 10-20-Life law. Under the 10-20-Life law, 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.
