Whittel & Melton – 352-369-5334
Former Florida State Prosecutors & Defenders – Board Certified Trial Lawyer
Lake County, Sumter County and Marion County Sex Crime Attorney

Sex crimes are some of the most serious criminal charges to face as prosecutors and police often side with the alleged victims without having any solid evidence to back up these claims. Allegations of a sex crime are complicated as these cases boil down to accusations that sexual activity occurred without consent, but without any witnesses, these cases turn into “he said, she said” matters that can lead to a conviction carrying very real consequences. Being accused of a sex crime in Lake County or Sumter County or anywhere in Florida can also damage your good standing within the community and lead to negative media attention. Because of the ramifications of just being accused of a sex crime, you must take action to protect yourself as soon as you are made aware of the allegations against you. You need to retain a sex crime defense attorney that can protect your privacy and constitutional rights right away.
