Can A Person Charged And Convicted Of A Felony Carry Or Possess A Firearm In Okaloosa County?

No, and Florida is very strict about these laws. Under Florida Statues §790.23 it is unlawful for a convicted felon to own, carry, or maintain possession or control of any firearm in any way.

And the penalties are very severe. It is a second degree felony punishable by up to but not exceeding 15 years in imprisonment, with the possibility of qualifying for a minimum mandatory prison sentence if the prosecutor can prove “actual” (or personal) possession.

If you have a loved one that has been arrested for an illegal gun, give me a call for a free consultation to see what I may be able to do.
