Miami Sexual Battery Attorney
Are you facing charges of sexual battery?
Sexual battery is the charge associated with the illegal act of touching an intimate part of someone else's body, without their express, knowing and voluntary permission. Statutes in the state of Florida often refer to sexual battery in the same context as rape and
sexual assault. A sexual battery charge is an extremely serious charge and not one that should be taken lightly. The penalties for sexual battery vary based on numerous factors including the age of the victim, whether physical force or restraint was employed, whether the accused used or threatened to use a deadly weapon, and more. Even the failure to report an observed sexual battery could result in a first degree misdemeanor charge.
If you are convicted of sexual battery, however, you can expect to face a lengthy prison term and mandatory sex offender registration. Should the act of sexual battery be committed by an individual (over the age of 18) against a minor (under the age of 12), and the minor suffered any personal injury to their sexual organs, it is considered as a capital felony and the accused could face life in prison or the death penalty. That is why if you have accused or charged with sexual battery, we strongly advise you consult with a
Miami sex crimes lawyer and former Miami Dade Cyber Crime Prosecutor from our firm as soon as possible. Once you do, we will be able to review the charges against you, analyze all evidence, advise you of your legal rights, and help you build the aggressive defense you will need.
