Defending Charges of Rape & Sexual Battery

Sexual battery is one of the most aggressively prosecuted sex crimes in Florida. If you have been charged with this crime, it is crucial you understand the severity of the situation and immediately seek skilled representation.

According to Florida Statute §794.011(h), sexual battery is the oral, anal, or vaginal penetration of an individual with an object or one's own sexual organs, excluding any penetration done for a bona fide medical purpose.

There are many penalties you could face if you have been charged with this crime. If you are over the age of 18 and charged with sexual battery of an individual under the age of 12, you could face capital felony charges. If you are convicted of a capital felony in Florida, according to Florida Statute §775.082, you will face the death penalty. We understand the fear, anxiety, and uncertainty regarding the future that you may be experiencing, and you can be sure that we will work with you toward the results you need.
