A Sexual Offense Must be Taken Seriously

Sexual offenses can be classified as 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 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.

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, you neighbors could be notified of your recent registration and you will have a public profile on the departments website that includes your photo, address and details about the sex crimes you were convicted of. This can have a huge impact on your life which is why you need to contact an experienced sex crime lawyer from Albert J. Sauline, III Attorney at Law.

Is Sexting a Sex Offense in Florida?

Handcuffs - Florida sex crimes

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 Florida 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.
