The State can certainly file charges. Based on the facts as you state them, and assuming you made no admissions, you may have some viable defenses. Consult with an experienced lawyer who can review all of the evidence and and advise you based on all of the evidence that the State has.See question
I saw this on the clerks website in a case I'm involved in.
I agree with all of my colleagues. it is a hearing where the Judge nd the lawyers discuss each case on the judge's docket and announce wither they are ready for trial, or need more time to prepare. If both sides are ready, the case is set for trial. If not, then the case will be continued to another docket sounding.See question

Early Resolution is an opportunity to try to resolve your case PRIOR to setting the case for trial. Yes, the possibility exists that the State could make an offer of probation or jail time to resolve the case. However, you should consult with a lawyer about the merits of any possible defenses in the case or even whether to accept any ER offers. Evidence will be made available to your lawyer before the ER date so that your lawyer can evaluate your case and make recommendations on accepting an ER offer.See question

My juvenile felonies consisted of possession of cannabis and possession of a concealed weapon when I was 15-16 years old and as an adult I have only been convicted of DUI when I was 22 years old. I am now 24 years old.
The DUI would not have any effect on your possessing a firearm. IF you were adjudicated as a delinquent, and that crime would be a felony as an adult, , it would be a crime to own/possess a firearm if you were under age 24.
See Florida statute 790.23:
(1) It is unlawful for any person to own or to have in his or her care, custody, possession, or control any firearm, ammunition, or electric weapon or device, or to carry a concealed weapon, including a tear gas gun or chemical weapon or device, if that person has been:
(a) Convicted of a felony in the courts of this state;
(b) Found, in the courts of this state, to have committed a delinquent act that would be a felony if committed by an adult and such person is under 24 years of age;
(c) Convicted of or found to have committed a crime against the United States which is designated as a felony;
(d) Found to have committed a delinquent act in another state, territory, or country that would be a felony if committed by an adult and which was punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year and such person is under 24 years of age; or
(e) Found guilty of an offense that is a felony in another state, territory, or country and which was punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding 1 year.
(2) This section shall not apply to a person convicted of a felony whose civil rights and firearm authority have been restored.
(3) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (4), any person who violates this section commits a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
(4) Notwithstanding the provisions of s. 874.04, if the offense described in subsection (1) has been committed by a person who has previously qualified or currently qualifies for the penalty enhancements provided for in s. 874.04, the offense is a felony of the first degree, punishable by a term of years not exceeding life or as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.
