Sex crime defense

Defending Against Allegation of Sex Offenses

Facing prosecution of an alleged sex crime in Florida is a terrifying experience, and simply being accused of such a crime can have a devastating impact on a person, as well as that person’s family, reputation, and career.


Conviction of certain sexually motivated crimes can result in mandatory prison time - in addition to extra-restrictive probation and requirements that the accused register as a sexual offender, which can in turn limit where a person can live, or what he/she does for a living. In Florida, the sex offender registry is forever. 

Even if the penalties can be limited, the very stigma such a charge brings can have a destructive impact on a person’s life. In Florida, even a relatively minor misdemeanor charge, say, public urination, is often charged as “exposure of a sexual organ”, which implies a lewdness that may not have existed. 

here are a number of defenses to such charges, and with proper handling, they need not interfere with future employment, college applications, and other aspects of your life.
