If you are charged with a sexual assault crime, the penalties can be severe. A compassionate sex crime defense attorney understands that even those who are exonerated with a “not guilty” verdict can be negatively impacted long-term.

Sex Crime Law

Your choice of sex crime lawyer is important because of Florida’s tough laws on these offenses, such as the sexual battery description and punishments (“Sexual battery”: Title XLVI, Chapter 794.011), Florida Sexual Predators Act (Title XLVI, Chapter 775.21), and sex offender registration provisions (“Sexual offenders required to register with the department; penalty”: Title XLVII, Chapter 943.0435).

One of the most widely known types of charge for which a sex crime attorney is needed is possession of child pornography. This crime has been a recent focus of arrests in Polk County, with up to 50 people arrested at once and accused of this life-altering, potentially reputation-crippling charge. In sting operations that extensive, people are often falsely accused and have their privacy invaded.
