FELON FIREARM POSSESSION
CHARGE OF FELON IN POSSESSION OF FIREARM
Section 790.23, Florida Statutes, addresses the crime of felons in possession of firearms. To prove this crime, the State must prove that the victim had been convicted of a prior felony and after the conviction, the Defendant knowingly owned, had in his or her care, custody, possession, or control a firearm, and electric weapon or device, or ammunition. Possession may be actual or constructive.
Actual possession means the object is in the hand of or on the person, or the object is so close as to be within ready reach and is under the control of the person. Constructive possession means the object is in a place over which the Defendant has control, or the Defendant has concealed it.
