Carrying a Concealed Weapon in Orlando
Charged With Carrying A Concealed Weapon In Orlando? We Can Help
Changes in Florida gun laws in recent years have added substantial complexity to questions of what is legal and what is not. The scope and limits on the rights that come with a concealed weapons permit (CWP) are not always fully understood by either the gun owner or law enforcement officer involved in an arrest. Florida gun owners without permits are subject to very different laws and restrictions.
One thing is certain: If you are facing any type of concealed weapon charge in Orlando or anywhere in Central Florida — either as a CWP holder or someone without a permit — it is critical to seek the legal advice of an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible.
Carrying A Concealed Weapon Charge - Penalties
Florida law takes concealed weapon charges very seriously. If you are convicted of this charge the penalties imposed upon you may include:
- Up to five years in prison on a third-degree felony charge if you are convicted of carrying a concealed firearm without a valid permit
- Up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine for a misdemeanor charge involving a weapon other than a firearm, such as a knife or Taser
- Serious consequences including jail time and permit revocation for CWP holders accused of brandishing their weapons or carrying guns into schools, government buildings or other premises where this is not permitted
Effective Weapons Charge Defense - Possible Strategies
Whether you were arrested when a gun was found in your vehicle or under other circumstances, it is critical to get counsel from a lawyer who truly knows the law and your constitutional rights.
