It is the intent of the 433 Legislature to establish zero tolerance of criminals who use, 434 threaten to use, or avail themselves of firearms in order to 435 commit crimes and thereby demonstrate their lack of value for 436 human life. It is also the intent of the Legislature that 437 prosecutors should appropriately exercise their discretion in 438 those cases in which the offenders’ possession of the firearm is 439 incidental to the commission of a crime and not used in 440 furtherance of the crime, used in order to commit the crime, or 441 used in preparation to commit the crime. For every case in which 442 the offender meets the criteria in this act and does not receive 443 the mandatory minimum prison sentence, the state attorney must 444 explain the sentencing deviation in writing and place such 445 explanation in the case file maintained by the state attorney. 446 Section 4. For the purpose of incorporating the amendment 447 made by this act to section 775.087, Florida Statutes, in a 448 reference thereto, paragraph (b) of subsection (1) of section 449 921.0024, Florida Statutes, is reenacted to read: 450 921.0024 Criminal Punishment Code; worksheet computations; 451 scoresheets.— 452 (1) 453 (b) WORKSHEET KEY: 454 455 Legal status points are assessed when any form of legal status 456 existed at the time the offender committed an offense before the 457 court for sentencing. Four (4) sentence points are assessed for 458 an offender’s legal status. 459 460 Community sanction violation points are assessed when a 461 community sanction violation is before the court for sentencing. 462 Six (6) sentence points are assessed for each community sanction 463 violation and each successive community sanction violation, 464 unless any of the following apply: 465 1. If the community sanction violation includes a new 466 felony conviction before the sentencing court, twelve (12) 467 community sanction violation points are assessed for the 468 violation, and for each successive community sanction violation 469 involving a new felony conviction. 470 2. If the community sanction violation is committed by a 471 violent felony offender of special concern as defined in s. 472 948.06: 473 a. Twelve (12) community sanction violation points are 474 assessed for the violation and for each successive violation of 475 felony probation or community control where: 476 I. The violation does not include a new felony conviction; 477 and 478 II. The community sanction violation is not based solely on 479 the probationer or offender’s failure to pay costs or fines or 480 make restitution payments. 481 b. Twenty-four (24) community sanction violation points are 482 assessed for the violation and for each successive violation of 483 felony probation or community control where the violation 484 includes a new felony conviction. 485 486 Multiple counts of community sanction violations before the 487 sentencing court shall not be a basis for multiplying the 488 assessment of community sanction violation points. 489 490 Prior serious felony points: If the offender has a primary 491 offense or any additional offense ranked in level 8, level 9, or 492 level 10, and one or more prior serious felonies, a single 493 assessment of thirty (30) points shall be added. For purposes of 494 this section, a prior serious felony is an offense in the 495 offender’s prior record that is ranked in level 8, level 9, or 496 level 10 under s. 921.0022 or s. 921.0023 and for which the 497 offender is serving a sentence of confinement, supervision, or 498 other sanction or for which the offender’s date of release from 499 confinement, supervision, or other sanction, whichever is later, 500 is within 3 years before the date the primary offense or any 501 additional offense was committed. 502 503 Prior capital felony points: If the offender has one or more 504 prior capital felonies in the offender’s criminal record, points 505 shall be added to the subtotal sentence points of the offender 506 equal to twice the number of points the offender receives for 507 the primary offense and any additional offense.
