SEX CRIMES

A false accusation of sexual abuse is easy to make and very difficult to fight on your own. You need the help of an experienced attorney who will fight for your rights.

According to the Center for Sex Offender Management (CSOM), approximately one in ten Florida State prisoners were convicted of sexual offenses. While this represents a 7 percent increase in sexual offense convictions since 1980, with 60 percent of convicted sex offenders under some type of conditional community supervision.

Sexual offense charges are not only serious criminal charges, but they can also be humiliating as the details of the accused individual's personal life are exposed, debated and judged. Sexual offense convictions often result in the following penalties:

  • prison time
  • community supervision
  • special education classes
  • permanent marks on his/her criminal record

If you or a loved one has been charged with a sexual offense, it's essential that you consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows how to handle these specific types of cases Gregory Schwendeman is a discreet and professional lawyer with extensive experience in Florida criminal cases, including an array of sexual offense charges.

Types of Sexual Offense Charges

Charges for sexual crimes may include:

  • child abuse
  • child pornography
  • incest
  • rape
  • sexual abuse
  • sexual assault

In some cases, mooning, streaking and public urination may also elicit sexual offense charges. For repeat offenders, the term sexual predator may be used. In most cases, convicted sexual offenders will have to register with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement , informing the authorities of where they are living. Currently, the FDLE have an free, easy-to-use and completely misleading online sex offender search tool that allows anyone to see where convicts are living, as well as the specific charges they have been convicted of, without giving any of the facts…once convicted the public will see you only as a predator.

Those who are convicted on more serious charges may have to register with the authorities for life while individuals convicted of lesser offenses will likely only have to register for a limited period of time.
