Tampa Criminal Defense Lawyer

Have you been arrested and charged with a sex crime such as statutory rape? It is vitally important to understand the penalties that you could face, and that you take the necessary steps to pursue a favorable outcome. If you are more than 24 years of age, and you have engaged in sexual activity with a person 16-17 years of age, then you could be arrested and charged with a second degree felony. The penalties for conviction of a second degree felony, according to Florida Statute §775.082(3.a.4.c), include a prison sentence of up to 15 years, but not less than five.

This is a serious penalty that could alter your future; in addition, you could be required to register as a sex offender. This is also a serious penalty as this will follow you for the rest of your life, and could prevent you from obtaining housing, employment, bank loans, and other benefits that require a background check. Your case is important to us, and you can look to our firm for the skillful and aggressive legal assistance that you need on your side.

    Our attorneys have been working in the courts for a long time and have developed positive relationships with all the people you may face during your case. This can help improve the position in your case, which can help your outcome.
