Sex crimes will affect your reputation, your liberty, where you live, who you talk to, how you travel – literally every aspect of your life. You need a skilled Florida sex crimes attorney on your side to obtain a favorable outcome in your case. Because of the publicity of past cases involving sex related crimes, especially those involving children, a person facing charges will more than likely face prejudice and discrimination from law enforcement, the jury and even court personnel.
Florida has some of the most stringent laws in place when it comes to sex offenses and their penalties. For example, in 2005, Florida implemented Jessica’s Law, in remembrance of Jessica Lunsford of Citrus County, which laid out strict laws in regards to registered sex offenders. Jessica’s Law served to increase the penalty for certain sex crimes as well as to implement a law regarding mandatory electronic monitoring devices for registered sex offenders. These laws have garnered controversy regarding their possible infringement on Constitutional rights, especially whether the penalties are too harsh for non-violent sex crimes offenders.
