Sex crime accusations are never something to take lightly. While we know that these charges are often the result of a mistake or a misunderstanding, the law does not see it that way. Law enforcement prosecutes these cases ruthlessly, which is why it is essential to have the best defense team in your corner.

An award-winning Miramar sex crimes lawyer at Rossen Law Firm is prepared to help you to beat these allegations. We know that sometimes, bad things happen to good people. We will fight to protect your reputation while presenting strong and persuasive arguments in court.

Many Sex Crimes are Misdemeanor Offenses

Sex crime charges can encompass a variety of behaviors. What differentiates these allegations from those of common battery or assault is the implication that a defendant committed an act for the purpose of sexual gratification.

The most straightforward example may be that of lewdness. According to Florida Statute § 800.03, it is illegal to expose one’s sexual organs in an indecent or vulgar way. To this end, even an incident of unintentional nudity may lead to criminal charges. The law classifies this offense as a misdemeanor. This means that a conviction can result in a fine of up to $1,000, a jail sentence of as long as one year, or both.

Other misdemeanor sex crimes include prostitution, solicitation, and adultery. Working with an experienced lawyer is crucial when facing any of these charges. An expert Miramar sex crimes attorney can work to put together a fair plea deal or prepare an expert defense for trial.

More Serious Sex Crimes are Felonies

While some sex crimes are misdemeanors, far more are felonies under state law. By definition, a felony is a crime where a conviction can result in at least one year in prison. The most serious examples carry mandatory minimums, and the prosecutor may even seek life imprisonment.

The clearest example is the state’s law prohibiting sexual battery. Fla. Stat. § 794.011 defines criminal sexual battery as the use of force to achieve oral, anal, or female genital penetration. A lack of consent may occur as the result of physical violence, coercion, intoxication, or unconsciousness. Under this law, a sexual battery conviction can result in life in prison.

State law also provides for other sexual offenses that can bring felony-level punishment. These include bigamy, incest, and child molestation. The sex crimes attorneys at Rossen Law Firm have extensive experience handling these cases and know how to build an effective defense.

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!!!

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.
