- Sexual battery (rape)

Penalties for a Florida Sexual Battery Conviction – Orlando Crime Lawyer
Harsh sentencing guidelines will impose mandatory prison time for a conviction. After your term, sex offender registry and the felony record will dictate where you can live and what employment you can have. You will have to inform local law enforcement and possibly new neighbors every time you move or change jobs.
The public is inclined to believe that anyone charged with rape is guilty. We know that there is often another side to the story — a woman who regrets or denies a consensual encounter, or has a motive to falsely accuse you. We also know that cooperating with police will make your situation worse, not better.
We vigorously challenge the evidence to get sexually battery charges dismissed or reduced, or to put you in a better position for plea negotiations or a trial. We look for any inconsistencies in the alleged victim’s story, any opportunity to contest the physical evidence, any witness or alibi that will help avoid the nightmare of a rape conviction.
