Sarasota Sex Crime Lawyer

Defending Rape, Sexual Assault & Other Sexual Offenses

Sex crimes are one of the most serious offenses to be charged with in Florida. Aside from incarceration, substantial fines, and other criminal penalties, a convicted sex offender will face social consequences, such as a diminished reputation, limited job opportunities because of a criminal record, and broken relationships.

Every individual convicted of a sexually related offense is designated as a sex offender and required to comply with the sex offender registration laws. For the remainder of a convicted person's life, a sex offender is required to update his or her residence information every three to six months.

Sex Crime Penalties

In general, conviction for sex crimes results in harsh penalties. The more severe the sex crime, the more serious the consequences can be upon conviction. Some common sex crimes include lewd or lascivious battery, which can result in a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Sexual battery is a crime that carries the most severe penalties in Florida. People convicted of rape may face up to a lifetime sentence in prison, but no less than nine years. Unlawful sex with a minor, commonly referred to as statutory rape, can be penalized with a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 15 years in prison.
