The involvement of a weapon in a crime adds a serious aspect to a case. Weapon offenses can result in severe prison sentences for those involved if those involved are charged with using a weapon in robbery or assault, gun trafficking, federal firearm violations or are felons in possession of a firearm or firearms. According to The Hoffman Firm, the state of Florida and the federal government both include weapons offenses among the crimes that require minimum mandatory sentencing.
Translated into modern language, this means that if a gun is used to perform a crime or is in one’s possession at the time of a crime, “enhancements” are added to one’s sentence if they are convicted of such a crime. This takes place over increments of months, but can quickly add up and dramatically increase prison time. If many guns and large amounts of drugs are involved in these types of cases, gang-related or gun trafficking territory could be brought into question, which may fall under the provisions of the Patriot Act.
