If you are under investigation for rape or have been accused and charged with a sex offense, you are facing serious penalties that exceed just jail time. A conviction for a sex offense places a permanent mark on your criminal record, and worse, could result in your name being placed on the Florida sex offender registry. As a registered sex offender, members of your community will be made aware of your crimes, and you will be forced to comply with registration requirements every time you move or start a new job.
