Sexual Offenses In Florida

The penalties for committing any of these crimes vary depending on the severity of the crime and the individual’s criminal history. Be sure you have an attorney who can protect your best interests throughout the negotiation and trial process.

Florida Sex Crimes Penalties

Although there are different consequences depending on the sex crime you are charged with there are a few penalties that are applied to all felony sex offenses in Florida.

  • Sex Offender Registration: If you are convicted of a sexually-related felony in Florida you have to register with the state and the National Sexual Offender Registry.
  • Imprisonment: Though it varies depending on the crime, all sexual felonies in Florida carry a mandatory prison sentence.
  • Civil Commitment Proceedings: If you have been convicted of a sex-related felony, the State Attorney may seek to have the offender admitted to a commitment facility after the completion of their criminal sentence.
  • Probation: Once a person who has been convicted of a sex crime is released, he will be put on Sex Offender Probation. This probation regulates where you can live, work, imposes a curfew and, requires sexual offender counseling.

Orlando Sex Crimes Defense Strategies

Defending someone charged with a sex-related crime is much more difficult than other criminal charges. Typically sex crimes have specialized police and attorneys and sex crimes prosecutors generally have much more experience than most.

As former prosecutors ourselves, we are well-versed on how these kinds of cases are handled. There are several types of defense strategies that may be admissible including:

  • False Charges: Sometimes people bring false charges of sexual assault to cover up consensual sex if it would be damaging to the person’s reputation.
  • False Memory Syndrome: False memory syndrome can come into play when children make allegations that they have been victimized. The questions that an authority figure asks a child can cause the child to say and remember things that didn’t really occur.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If photos, computer files, or other materials were confiscated from you, and the search and seizure was improperly handled by the police,  the obtained evidence is inadmissible.
  • Entrapment: Were you entrapped to commit a crime you would not normally have committed? If so, charges can be dropped.
  • Computer Hacking: Did someone hack into your computer and download images that you would never have downloaded yourself? If so, the charges won’t stick.
