The Associated Press reported today that a Jacksonville man purportedly sat on his own gun and shot himself in the penis.
That is the smallest of his problems
According to press reports he had a prior conviction for selling cocaine, so he was a convicted felon. Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon will land you in jail, and ultimately in State prison. He would have been better off is someone else had shot him in his “Johnson”. He made a terrible mistake admitting he shot himself. Maybe he accidently sat on someone else’s gun? It sounds more likely that in reality, he shot himself in the penis, sticking the gun in his belt or pants. It is next to impossible to sit on a gun and make it fire. It is really easy to shoot yourself sticking it in your pants. I hope he did not make some stupid admission and let’s hope it wasn’t some huge caliber gun. Imagine how he is going to feel if he ends up in prison and the other inmates ask him what he is in for? It would have to be pretty embarrassing to say “I got three years in the joint for shooting myself in the joint”. Some days it just doesn’t pay to get up.
A person has the right to remain silent….Not all people have the ability to remain silent. Some gun crimes carry minimum mandatory prison sentences. Florida has a ten, twenty life rule. Wouldn’t it be something if he caught major time for shooting himself? Let’s hope the judge and the State Attorney’s office have pity on him. He has already gotten a “stiff” sentence from “mister 9mm.
Has some woman you had sex with now claiming it was non-consensual?
Are they claiming you got them drunk or drugged them?
Is a gay hookup partner making waves and shaking you down for money?
Is a “one night stand” now claiming they are underage? Are you married and being extorted by some woman you hooked up with?
Are you under investigation by the police? Have detectives tried to contact you?
If the answer to any of these is yes, you need to lawyer up immediately. Don’t wait to get arrested or simply hope and think this will go away.
As a sex crime attorney handling sexual battery cases, the most common reason is next morning “regrets”. Having second thoughts about the night before is the number one reason women make a false accusation. If they are married, and their husband has found out, it is easy for them to say, “it was not my fault…I was drugged” or “he made me do it”. Many rape accusations are simply false. It never happened…or…it didn’t happen that way. I have seen every shake down there is. As a sex crime lawyer, in my experience, I have found that many sex crime accusations are simply false. Money may be at the root of the problem. It may just be a shakedown. Jealousy is another common motive. If you have had sex with roommates or sisters, it is common for one or the other to claim it was non-consensual. Young women, who may or may not have allegedly lost their virginity, often claim they were drunk, drugged or forced. I have had a number of cases where a woman claims to have been forced to give oral sex (a blow job). That is next to impossible unless deadly force was threatened or used. There may be religious motivations. Is the accuser a Morman? According to the book of Morman, pre marital sex is a heinous unforgivable sin. It is excused however if the woman claims she is a “victim”. That makes it easy for her to be forgiven by simply claiming she was coerced , drugged or forced.
A rape accusation can ruin your life forever…. A sex crime arrest is devastating

ALL CORRESPONDENCE AND COMMUNICATION IS CONFIDENTIAL
As a criminal defense lawyer, I have heard this comment thousands of times. In almost every domestic violence case, had one person simply turned and walked away the entire situation, including and arrest could have been avoided. In a bar fight, anaggravated battery case, the fight would never have gone down. There is no winner in a fight. The loser goes to the hospital and the winner goes to jail. There is no winner in a road rage confrontation. Do you have any idea how many altercations are caused by alcohol? I would say that in over three quarters of all the domestic violence cases I handle, alcohol is the cause. Some people are what I call a “nasty drunk”. When they are sober, they are friendly and loving but with a few drinks in them, they become surly, confrontational and agitated. Pent up frustrations come flowing out with a little alcohol and usually a family member or spouse becomes the victim. Most of the time, the people are not “bad” but simply cannot handle their drinks.
The police have zero tolerance for an intoxicated person. If a wife or relative calls 911 to have the police come out and calm the person down, chances are someone is going to jail. Mouthing off to a cop is never a good idea and most drunks don’t know how to keep their mouth shut. They may have the right to remain silent but because of alcohol lack the ability to remain silent.
You will always lose in an argument with a police officer or deputy sheriff. I would be willing to bet that there is someone in your family that matches my description of a “nasty drunk”. What they really need is help, not time in jail. The first symptom of alcoholism is denial. Getting arrested for fighting with a wife, brother, sister or other family member should be a sobering event. The light should go on that “you need help”. As a criminal defense lawyer, my first goal is to keep the person out of jail, out of prison and to prevent a “conviction”. Criminal convictions have bad consequences. You can lose a good job or professional license and end up with a criminal history following you for life. At our criminal defense firm, we also try and get people who need help, the guidance they need. You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. We will at least try and point you on the right track. The rest is up to you.
