Any battery in which a firearm or gun is used is upgraded from a simple battery to an aggravated battery with a firearm. Aggravated battery with a firearm is essentially the same as aggravated battery with a deadly weapon - the deadly weapon being a firearm or gun. It is a second degree felony punishable by up to fifteen years in prison and a $10,000.00 fine in its basic state, but the reality is that because gun crimes have minimum mandatory sentences in Florida, the actual potential penalties are far more severe - often up to life in prison.
Because of Florida's 10-20-Life law, anyone charged with shooting another and causing serious injury risks being sentenced to a 25 year minimum mandatory sentence up to life in prison. Merely possessing a firearm during an aggravated battery carries a 10 year minimum mandatory sentence. If a firearm was discharged, but there was not serious injury or death, the minimum mandatory sentence is 20 years.
