Being convicted of rape charges or sexual battery can have life-changing consequences. You may believe that have been wrongfully charged, or that your crime does not warrant the severe consequences you are facing. If that is the case, you should seek legal assistance from a sexual assault criminal defense attorney.
Rape charges, often referred to as sexual battery or aggravated sexual assault charges in Florida, are considered among the most serious offenses in the Florida criminal law system. Prosecutors will do everything they can to get a conviction and will press judges for the maximum prison terms under the state sentencing guidelines. In addition to the harsh mandatory sentence, you will also likely be required to register on the state’s sex offender registry, possibly for the remainder of your life.
We will work aggressively to dismiss rape charges and sexual battery. We can also reduce the charge to a nonsexual offense or an offense that does not include registry on the Florida sex offender registry. This alone can give you better options to lead a normal life.
From our offices in West Palm Beach, we represent people charged with sex offenses in Palm Beach County and throughout Florida.
"At our meeting, you answered my questions and gave me hope in what was still an uncertain situation. Many thanks to you and your staff for the kindness and compassion that was shown to me. I had indeed called on the right defense attorney."
"He kept me informed, kept it real, and most importantly cared. He was always available by cell or at the office. When I was in jail he came to visit at least once every ten days. At first I thought he was too good to be true but in talking to some of his other clients he is the real deal."
