Sexually based criminal offenses are treated especially harshly by both law enforcement and members of the general public in Florida. Even if you have never faced a criminal allegation of any kind before, a single conviction for a sex crime could have life-changing repercussions that may include steep fines, years in prison, and other penalties that may persist long after you complete your term of incarceration.

With all that being said, it is possible to fight back against charges like these with the help of an experienced defense attorney. At Rossen Law Firm, we know that dealing with charges like this may seem daunting and embarrassing, leaving you unsure of what your future holds. We are here to take that stress off of you. Let our team of Boca Raton sex crimes lawyers get to work for you— reach out today to get started.

Defining and Defending Against Sex Crimes

While “sex crimes” are not laid out specifically under state law, they are understood to be offenses involving sexual behavior meant to give gratification to the alleged offender at the direct expense of someone who did not—or could not—consent. Some sex crimes, like indecent exposure, can be prosecuted as misdemeanors under certain circumstances, but the vast majority are categorized as felonies, whether they are forcible in nature or not.

Specific offenses that are almost always considered felony sex crimes in Florida include:

  • Lewd and lascivious acts with a minor under 16 years old, often called statutory rape
  • Possession, distribution, or production of child pornography
  • Repeat offenses of prostitution or solicitation
  • Sexual battery, also called sexual assault or rape
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Kidnapping or false imprisonment, in certain situations

An experienced Boca Raton sex crime defense attorney can help build a strong and comprehensive defense against these or any other similar charges.

Unique Sanctions Associated with Sex Crime Convictions

In addition to thousands of dollars in fines and multiple years—sometimes even decades—of prison time, individuals convicted of sex offenses in Florida are also often sentenced to a lengthy term of probation after they are released. The terms of this probation can be surprisingly restrictive, as they may include requirements to:

  • Provide DNA samples to law enforcement
  • Refrain from having any contact with the person or people affected by their actions
  • Pay restitution
  • Abide by mandatory curfews and/or treatment program participation
  • Not use certain computer or Internet services

On top of that, many sex crimes come with mandatory sex offender registration upon conviction. Failing to establish and/or maintain registration constitutes another serious criminal offense. A sex crimes lawyer in Boca Raton can go into specific detail about sanctions associated with a particular charge during a confidential consultation.

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
