Understanding Sex Crimes in Florida: What You Need to Know

In the year 2018, there were a total of 1,382 sex offense-related arrests statewide according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Of these, 122 of the offenders were juveniles and 1,260 were adults. 112 of these occurred in Palm Beach County. 

Florida Statutes recognizes a wide variety of crimes as sex crimes. Florida is strict when it comes to penalizing sex crimes and almost all offenses are charged as felonies. You may be facing first, second, or third-degree felonies depending on what your specific crime was, the age of the victim, if you are a repeat offender, or if there was violence or forced used in committing the crime.

Sex crimes include:

  • Exposure of sexual organs
  • Incest
  • Lewd and lascivious behavior
  • Lewd or lascivious exhibition in the presence of an employee
  • Lewd or lascivious offenses committed upon or in the presence of an elderly person or disabled person
  • Offenses against students by authority figures
  • Sexual battery (rape)
  • Unlawful sex with minors (statutory rape)
  • Unnatural and lascivious acts

If you are convicted of any sex crime in Florida, you will have to register yourself with the FDLE’s Sexual Offender and Predator System. This registry is public information and includes your name, age, gender, race, home address, identifiable information, the type of offense you were convicted of, your place of employment, and what sentencing you served for the crime. Having the help of an experienced West Palm Beach sex crime lawyer can help you avoid this and other devastating consequences.
