Sexual Offenses & Sex Crimes

The legal implications of sexual crimes can be quite complex because such crimes can involve scientific evidence (such as DNA), medical evidence (such as medical records and reports), and expert testimony (of medical doctors). Sex crimes in Florida include:

  • Capital sexual battery
  • Sexual battery
  • Unnatural and lascivious act
  • Exposure of sexual organs
  • Lewd or lascivious offenses committed upon or in the presence of persons less than 16 years of age
  • Child pornography
  • Sexual crimes committed on the internet

It is sometimes the case that an alleged victim will make a false accusation during a divorce or a child custody dispute in order to better his or her legal standing in the litigation. The problem is compounded by the fact that there are those in the legal system who find it difficult if not impossible to believe that such things as false accusations even exist.

For all these reasons and more, sex crimes can be some of the most emotionally draining types of cases for a criminal attorney to handle, and it’s important to hire an experienced attorney who can handle these challenges.
