Sexual Assault & Sexual Battery Charges in Clearwater

When a person makes sexual contact with someone else without that person’s explicit permission, it’s considered sexual assault or sexual battery. This may include any of the following:

  • Forced sexual intercourse
  • Child molestation
  • Incest
  • Other forms of unwanted sexual touching

In Florida, sexual assault and sexual battery are considered second-degree felonies, often resulting in up to 15 years’ incarceration and fines exceeding $10,000. The use of a weapon or extreme physical force makes these more serious criminal charges, and in some cases, a guilty verdict could result in a life sentence. Many of these cases are related to internet sex crimes.

In addition to the fines, probation, and jail time associated with these crimes, you may also be required to register as a sex offender with the state database. This can impact where you can live, what types of jobs you can have, and where and if you can further your education. It also comes with a social stigma and can greatly affect your standing in the community.

Issues Related to Prostitution & Solicitation

The state of Florida explicitly prohibits prostitution and solicitation. The penalties for solicitation can be severe, and a first offense is usually considered a misdemeanor in the second degree. A second violation is bumped up to a first-degree misdemeanor, with felony charges likely to result from a third or subsequent arrest for solicitation of a prostitute. If you’ve been accused of solicitation, it’s critical to work with a Clearwater criminal defense attorney to find out if you can get the charges against you dropped or reduced.
