Possible Contributing to Child Delinquency Defenses in Florida

  • Lack of Causation: If the defendant’s actions did not induce, tend to induce, or cause the alleged delinquency, the alleged crime can be fought on the basis that it never occurred.  

  • Lack of Knowledge: If the defendant is charged with “knowingly” contributing to the delinquency of a child, a lack of knowledge may serve as a complete defense to the charge.

  • Factual Differences: If there are factual disagreements about the defendant’s conduct, and legal reasons the child would not be classified as a delinquent, dependent or as a child in need of services, then this may be used as a defense.
