A Sexual Offense Charge Must be Taken Seriously
In Florida, sexual offenses can be classified as the following categories:
lewd/lascivious acts, sexual battery or rape and unlawful sex with minors.
If you are facing accusations of a sex crime, consult an aggressive Panama
City sex crime lawyer immediately.
Sex crime charges this Panama City defense firm can fight against include:
- Child molestation
- Indecent exposure
- Internet offenses (child pornography or sexting)
- Sexual assault
- Sexual battery (forcible or date rape)

Florida has been deemed one of the harshest states for sex offenders. If,
for example, you are convicted of a violent sexual offense, you can still
face "civil commitment" (or further confinement because you
are considered to still be at risk) after completing your sentence. Don't
risk your future and freedom - you owe it to yourself to work with a seasoned lawyer.
Is sexting a sex offense in Florida?
Sexting is prohibited by Florida law, and should be taken seriously. According
to Florida Statute 847.0141, a minor who knowingly transmits nude photographs
or videos through a computer, cell phone, or other electronic device can
be committing a sex crime. Any individual who receives or possesses nude
photographs or videos sent by a minor may also be found guilty under this
statute. Although jail or prison time is rare for sexting, a conviction
can still hamper your future educational and employment opportunities.
