Sexual Predator vs. Sex Offender
Don't Get Convicted as a Sexual Predator
Fighting Sex Crimes Charges in Central Florida
Being designated a sexual predator is a serious step beyond being classified as a sex offender. You can be designated as a sexual predator (under Florida Statute 775.21) if you:
- Are convicted of a qualifying capital, life, or first degree felony sex crime OR have two or more qualifying sex offenses AND
- You have 2 convictions of qualifying felony sex offenses civilly committed under the Florida Jimm Ryce sexually violent predator act.
If you have a prior conviction for a sex crime, especially if it involved children or violence, you are at risk for being classified as a sexual predator.

Sexual Predators are Treated Differently
Anyone with a sex crimes conviction is required, under Megan's Law, to register with the state as a sex offender. Although it is difficult, it is possible for some people who have been classified as sex offenders to petition to have their name removed from the Florida sex offender registry if they received a full pardon or their conviction was set aside. That is not the case for sexual predators.
Also see Florida statute 943.04354 for special circumstances where a person can remove their requirement to register as a sex offender or sexual predator.
At The Umansky Law Firm, when we handle a repeat sex offense case, our attorneys look at both the physical evidence and the psychological issues that could be a factor for the victim or the "offender." Whenever possible, we seek to prove our client's innocence. If psychological treatment is necessary, we look for ways to help our client get help while minimizing damaging punishments.
