The attorneys at our firm have years of experience in cases involving sex crimes. In fact, an attorney from our firm is a former sex crimes prosecutor for Hillsborough County. If you have recently been arrested for this type of crime, there is much at stake. Convictions can not only mean time in prison, probation, and other criminal penalties, but permanent listing on the sex offender registry. Only a highly skilled and experienced Tampa sex crime defense attorney should be trusted with this type of criminal accusation.
Sex crimes are detailed in Title XLVI of the Florida Statutes in various sections such as § 794 and § 800. In many cases, an alleged sex offense alone is enough to destroy a person's reputation.
Under the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida's Public Safety Information Act went into effect in 1997. The act was designed to increase public awareness of sexual offenders and promote public safety. This is just one example of the way that the state of Florida takes sex offenses so seriously.
We will fight vigorously for your rights and fair treatment. Our attorneys are former prosecutors which means they have experience on both sides of the criminal justice system and therefore a knowledge of how the prosecution might attack your case.
Sex crimes can vary widely in terms of seriousness and penalties but don't make the mistake of not hiring the best attorney possible for your legal representation. Let our team of experienced criminal defense attorneys and a former sex crimes prosecutor go to work for you.
