Florida divides its sex crimes into two basic categories: Sexual Battery and Lewdness.

The Sexual Battery statutes are directed toward the non-consensual or forcible types of sex, commonly referred to as rape. Sexual Battery is defined as any penetration, however slight, or mere contact between a male or female’s sexual organ and the mouth, anus, or vagina of another constitutes sexual battery. Consent or the lack thereof is not an element of the definition of “Sexual Battery.”

The second set of laws dealing with sex crimes are the Lewd and Lascivious statute. The statute is broken into four basic crimes: Lewd and Lascivious Battery, Lewd and Lascivious Molestation, Lewd and Lascivious Conduct, and Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition.

These cases require delicate yet aggressive representation because of the complexities of the laws, the potential penalties, and the victim’s age.   Our attorneys our former prosecutors and have successfully prosecuted these serious cases.  More importantly, our attorneys have successfully defended sex crime cases for the past eight years since leaving the prosecutor’s office.  We are aggressive and will relentlessly defend you.
