Sex Crimes We Defend

Most sex crimes are prosecuted in state court, although occasionally, a sex-related offense can be prosecuted as a federal criminal case. Here are different types of sex crimes and some of the most common sex crime cases we defend:

What Is a Sex Offense?

Aggressively Defending Sex Crime Charges in Miami

Have you, a friend, or a family member been accused of a sex crime in Miami? If you are found guilty of a sex crime, it could have lasting consequences for your personal and professional life. Convictions for sex crimes can seriously harm your reputation, where you are allowed to live, who you can talk to, your ability to work in specific fields, travel, and your immigration status if you are not a U.S. citizen. The odds of obtaining a favorable outcome in your case increase significantly with an experienced Miami sex crime defense lawyer on your side. Since sex-related crimes often involve children and other vulnerable people, a person facing charges can sometimes face prejudice and discrimination from law enforcement, the jury, and even the court staff.

Every person accused of committing a crime has a right to have a lawyer by their side, aggressively defending them. It’s human nature for people to assume someone is guilty from the accusation alone—but an accusation is not evidence. As Mark Twain famously said, “A lie can travel around the world and back again while the truth is lacing up its shoe.” You can rest assured knowing that if we represent you, we will do everything within our power to defend your reputation and freedom. 

Sex Offense Penalties in Florida

As far as sex crimes and their penalties go, Florida provides some of the harshest punishment in the country. Sex crimes—especially against children—stir up intense feelings in most people. Lawmakers respond by passing ever more harsh laws that increase punishments and sex-offender reporting requirements for people convicted of sex crimes. As a result, a sex crime conviction can often have devastating consequences, from a years-long state prison sentence to lifelong sex offender reporting requirements. The conviction can become a permanent part of your record and can interfere with all aspects of your life, from future employment and housing to custody matters. A sex crime conviction can also have disastrous effects on your immigration status if you are a non-US citizen. You will need the help from experienced sex offense lawyers to help preserve your reputation.
