Colbert Law: Defending Those Accused of Sex Crimes

Florida is known for having extremely harsh laws when it comes to sex crimes. Because the state places a lot of emphasis on preventing these instances, one of their main focuses is encouraging prevention by creating substantial penalties for those found guilty in a court of law.

If you have been charged or arrested for a sex crime, or even if you believe you are a suspect in a crime, don’t wait to retain the services of an Orlando criminal defense lawyer. Lead attorney Tiffany Colbert has handled more than a thousand criminal cases. She and her team have significant experience in and out of the courtroom, enabling them to handle every single aspect of your case.

Penalties for Sex Crimes in Florida

Some of the penalties for sex crimes include the following:

  • Sexual Battery: Minimum of 9 years to maximum life in prison
  • Lewd or Lascivious Battery: Minimum 7 years in prison to maximum 15 years
  • Lewd Offenses: Minimum of probation up to maximum 15 years in prison
  • Statutory Rape: Minimum 5 years in prison to maximum 15 years

In addition to the penalties listed above, many individuals convicted of a sex crime are required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of their life. They will need to keep the information up to date every three to six months. In addition to prison time, many sexual offenders are given a probation sentence and, while they are not in jail for this time, the regulations surrounding their sentence can be strict and extremely debilitating.

Additionally, some individuals who have been convicted may be held longer than their original sentencing through the Jimmy Ryce Act. A conviction goes on a criminal record as a mark, making it hard to secure jobs in the future and even creating issues with housing or finances. It truly can hinder you from moving forward.
