What Are Sex Crimes?

Prostitution, child molestation, rape, and sexual assault are considered sex crimes and each has different degrees of consequences, ranging from being registered as a sex offender to incarceration, heavy fines and more.

Sex crimes that are prevalent in the state of Florida include:

Prostitution: Having sex in exchange for money

Child Molestation: Sexual or indecent activities between an adult and a child (under the age of 14)

Statutory Rape: Sexual intercourse between an adult and a minor (under the age of 18)

If you are convicted of a sex crime, not only is your future at stake, but also your reputation. It is essential that you work with an attorney who understands the sensitive nature of sex crimes and who will work hard to not only clear your name, but prevent you from incurring serious punishment.

What to Do You’ve Been Accused Of a Sex Crime

If convicted of a sex crime, you will be registered as a sex offender, which will list your name, address and crimes in a sex offender database that is made available to the public. If you are placed on sex offender probation, it will dictate where you work, live, and travel for the rest of your life. In some cases, a convicted sex offender is monitored electronically, and in other cases, the convicted faces lengthy prison sentences and hefty fines.
