Michael A. Haber, P.A.’s Webisode on Florida’s 10-20-LIFE Sentencing Enhancement (Click here to view the entire 33 Webisode play list.) 10-20-LIFE is a sentencing enhancement statute designed to “punish” those who use firearms during the… Scroll down to read more!


10-20-LIFE is a sentencing enhancement statute designed to “punish” those who use firearms during the commission of certain offenses.  In short, if applied then the law “tacks” on minimum-mandatory prison time to a sentence as follows:  If you brandish a firearm then you must serve ten (10) years (day for day); if you discharge the firearm then you must serve twenty (20) years (day for day); and if one of your bullets strikes someone (anyone) then you must serve a minimum mandatory LIFE sentence.




This law supplements whatever sentence you receive on a given offense.  For example, if you are convicted of armed carjacking and you discharged a firearm during the commission of your offense then you could get LIFE in prison for the crime itself coupled with a minimum-mandatory twenty (20) year sentence (wherein you get no “gain time” or other time off of your sentence).  Or, if you commit aggravated child abuse with a firearm which you did not discharge then you could get fifteen (15) years in prison on the underlying offense with a ten (10) year minimum mandatory.



Why is this important?  In the last example,  aggravated child abuse with a firearm, if you got the statutory maximum of fifteen (15) years without 10-20-LIFE the you would serve 85% of the sentence, or 12.75 years.  With 10-20-LIFE the first 10 years would not be subject to the 85% rule and would be served day-for-day with the 85% kicking in on year eleven (11), meaning that you would serve 10 + {(5 x .85 or} 4.25 for a total of 14.25 years (versus 12.75 years).  The bottom line in Florida is that “if you use a gun then you are done”.
