Charged With Federal Weapons Crime? Duval County Federal Gun Charge Lawyer.
With the right attorney, however, there may be some options available to you. Some of those options include pleading to a lesser included offense that does not carry a mandatory minimum sentence.
There is also the option — if you have information that may be helpful in other prosecutions or investigations — for a 5K motion that may allow the court to break the mandatory sentence.
These options, however, are unlikely to be available if you do not retain a superior defense attorney with the knowledge and skills to pursue them.
