Possession of Firearm by Convicted Felon


It is an extremely trying time to be dealing with the criminal trial or investigation process. You don’t know what kind of potential jail time and major fines you will be dealing with, and you also don’t want that permanent mark on your record. All of this is why it is so important to bring in an experienced criminal defense attorney to defend you. Without one, you can’t be surprised when your final verdict does not match what you had hoped. The Law Offices of R. Wayne Richter are ready to use a ton of experience to assist you with your case.

There are many types of criminal cases handled by attorney Wayne Richter, including possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. “Florida Statute 790.23 prohibits anyone who has been convicted of a felony in either state or federal courts from knowingly having a firearm in their possession, custody, care or control.” This charge carries a second degree felony tag, and can result in a punishment of up to 15 years in prison. These cases are rarely simple, and Wayne will need to figure out whether you were in “actual possession” or “constructive possession” in order to give you your options. He also has a number of potential defenses to your situation, including an antique firearm stipulation.

Nobody should have to go through a process like this without proper representation. And, with so much on the line, it is imperative that you find the very best to defend you. Wayne Richter understands the complexities of the criminal justice system, and can use that to your advantage during your case. Don’t underestimate just how important it is to have someone like this by your side. Contact The Law Offices of R. Wayne Richter, today, and get started with your free initial consultation.
