Sexual Offenses Must be Taken Seriously

Sexual offenses can be classified into the following categories: lewd/lascivious acts, sexual battery or rape, and unlawful sex with minors. 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 still at risk) after completing your sentence. Don't risk your future and freedom - you owe it to yourself to work with a seasoned lawyer.

Sex Crime Cases We Handle:

  • Child molestation
  • Indecent exposure
  • Internet offenses (child pornography or sexting)
  • Prostitution
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery (forcible or date rape)
  • Statutory rape

Sex Offender Registration

One of the worst consequences of being convicted of a sex crime is you may be required to register as a sex offender with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Because of this, your neighbors could be notified of your current registration. You will have a public profile on the department's website that includes your photo, address, and details about the sex crimes you were convicted of. This can greatly impact your life, so you need to contact an experienced sex crime lawyer from Albert J. Sauline, III, Attorney at Law.

Is Sexting a Sexual 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 another electronic device can commit a Florida sex crime. Any individual who receives or possesses nude pictures 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.
