Different Types Of Criminal Sexual Abuse Of A Child In Florida
The sexual abuse of a child can occur in several different ways. Criminal sexual abuse of a child can include:
- An adult taking photos of a child in the nude
- Shows nude photos of a child to others
- Indecent exposure
- Child molestation
Sexual abuse of a child involving photos can also be charged as child pornography crimes. In any case involving child molestation, it is not a defense for the defendant to claim that they didn’t know the age of the child.
Criminal Charges For Child Molestation
According to Florida law, indecent or sexual activities committed between an adult and a child under the age of 16 constitute child molestation. A person is guilty of lewd or malicious molestation for intentionally touching the genitals, breasts or buttocks, or the clothing covering those areas, of a child who is under the age of 16, or for forcing a child to touch them in those areas. Sexual battery is sexual activity without consent, and sexual battery of a child can be charged as an aggravated crime.
