Florida felon charged with probation violation and weapons charge

| Jul 2, 2014 | Criminal Defense

In the state of Florida, a felony conviction can have serious ramifications for the lives of those who have been found guilty. One such consequence is the inability of felons to own guns and other weapons. This restriction is taken very seriously by all law enforcement agencies, and violating it can lead to increased penalties for those who have broken the law.

A case involving just such a scenario took place recently as a Florida man convicted of felony crimes was apparently found to be in possession of a number of guns and other weapons by parole officers and other law enforcement officials. In addition to the firearms, also discovered in the man’s home arsenal were a number of knives as well as Tasers and even a tomahawk. 

The charges levied against the man in this incident included two counts of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and one count of violating probation.

It is always important to remember in cases like this one that we are all entitled to due process and the presumption of innocence in all criminal proceedings. Furthermore, on occasion police and parole officers can make critical errors in their investigations or inquiries. In short, while it remains to be seen how this case will play out in court, we must always remember that those with prior convictions do have rights, and those rights must be respected by all law enforcement officials and courts of law.

If you have been charged with felony crimes or violations, you may need a vigorous criminal defense to ensure that your rights are respected and that you don’t face undue punishment or penalties. In attempting to secure those rights, you may want to discuss your case with an attorney. An attorney may provide valuable advice and consultation about your case and how to properly defend your legal rights.
