Common Sex Crime Offenses

In Florida, an individual can face charges for various types of offenses involved with sexual misconduct. Sexual acts that are deviant in nature, the exchange of sexual activity for money, or forced and non-consensual sexual acts, all define a sex crime. Even some forms of consensual sexual actions can be criminalized.

Sex Crimes Against Children

Some of the most harshly penalized offenses involve offenses against children. Child sexual abuse involves the molestation and forced intercourse of a minor. The crime of battery for adults can be charged as child abuse when committed to a child. Child molestation is another form of child abuse that involves an adult using a minor for sexual stimulation.

Solicitation of a child for unlawful sex is an illegal act that refers to the use of online services to seduce or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual conduct. Lewd conduct is another crime against children referring to the intentional touching of a minor less than 16 years of age in a lascivious manner.

We are prepared to handle cases concerning:

Sex Crimes Against Adults

Adults, as well as children, can be victims of sex crimes. Date rape is a crime that refers to the forced sexual intercourse during a voluntary social engagement when the victim had no intention of submitting to engage in sexual activity. Sexual battery is the undesired contact with an intimate body part by another individual for the purpose of the offender's sexual arousal and gratification.

Prostitution, giving or receiving of ones' body for sexual activity aimed at monetary gain, is illegal for both parties. Indecent exposure laws prohibit the display of an individual's sexual organs in a public area.

Sex Crime Penalties in Florida

Any sex crime arrest is a serious situation and the charges you face could negatively impact your life. If convicted, the penalties would directly correlate with the specific sex crime you have been charged. Additional aggravating factors, such as the offense being against a minor or involvement of a weapon, could result in higher penalties. You could face heavy fines, a long prison sentence, probation, and parole, if convicted.

Under Megan's Law, mandatory sex offender registration is required for most sex crime convictions. Registration is often the most disheartening penalty associated with sex crimes because it will negatively influence the remainder of your life, including where you can live and work. Failure to register as a sex offender is an offense that will result in increased penalties.

Defense Against Sex Crime Allegations

Sex crime cases typically consist of one person's word against another. In such circumstances, the testimonies can become very inconsistent and evidence may be limited. At our criminal defense firm, we can focus on highlighting your intentions and innocence while pointing out the weaknesses of the prosecution's argument.

Many sex crime allegations arise because the defendant was in the wrong place at the wrong time or false accusations existed. Our lawyers can help you develop a strong case that effectively combats the charges against you. Contact us today to understand the complex sex crime laws!
