AGGRAVATED ASSAULT WITH A FIREARM

During a family gathering, a dispute developed during which our client was alleged to have pointed a handgun in a threatening manner at the alleged victim. The alleged victim’s account was supported by a witness. The client asserted that he did lawfully possess and was carrying a firearm at the time of the alleged incident, but denied threatening the alleged victim. The client further contended that he felt threatened and would have been justified to defend himself with the firearm, but said that he did not do so. If convicted the client would have been required to serve a minimum mandatory three years in prison, and could get up to a five year prison sentence. We filed a Motion Seeking Immunity under the “Florida Stand Your Ground” law, but the court denied the motion after a hearing.
