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.
