Sexual Cyberharassment Defenses in Florida

  • Consent: One component of the offense is that the individual did not consent to having their photo shared. Evidence that the depicted individual consented to having their image shared can be used as a defense.
  • Anonymity: It can be argued that the crime did not occur if the poster did not include any identifying information of the individual in the photo or video shared.
  • No Right to Privacy: According to the law, an individual has a reasonable expectation of privacy when sending an explicit photo to one person. However, if the image was sent to multiple people or posted online, that right to privacy may not exist and can be used as grounds for defense.
