Any sex crime charge, especially an allegation of sexual battery or rape, can result in very serious consequences for the accused. A sex crime conviction can be devastating in many ways. In addition to prison time, a conviction can result in mandatory sex offender registration and a lifetime of distrust and avoidance by your community. The scary thing is that sometimes these charges can stem from perfectly legal activity.

Hire an Attorney Immediately
If you are being accused of committing a sex crime, speak to a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Your attorney should have experience handling sex crimes and false accusations, and familiarity with Florida law pertaining to your charge. I can defend you in any sex crime, including:
Lewd and lascivious behavior
Sexual battery (rape)
Sex with an underage individual (statutory rape)
At the Law Offices of Mark G. Rodriguez, P.A., I will thoroughly investigate any evidence and identify any motives that the victim may have had in accusing you of this crime. The sooner you contact me, the more time I have to prepare your defense.
