At Lail Law Firm, PLLC, you can work with an experienced Sarasota sex crimes attorney who has built a reputation for dependable defense when it counts. No matter the severity of the charges, you can count on me to stand up for your rights and demand your innocence be protected.
What Are the Defense Strategies for Sex Crimes?
When a person is charged with a sex crime, it is almost always a felony offense with potential prison sentences, huge fines, and a possible mandate to register as a sex offender. Building a strong defense means telling your side of the story and showing that you are not the criminal the prosecution makes you out to be. I can help.
Some possible defenses include proving:
- You are not the person who committed the act: This could include showing you were elsewhere when the crime was committed or that you could not have possibly carried it out.
- There was consent between you and the victim: Unfortunately, not all consensual acts remain such as years pass. Sometimes, people will make accusations in order to obtain an advantage against another person. If there was consent, I can help you prove it.
- You were not in your right mind: While this involves an admission of some guilt, using such a defense often helps to lower the criminal consequences. If you were unaware of your conduct, there is some hope that saying so could help lower the punishment.
Since 2006, I have been helping my clients get the information they need to effectively use their legal options. You don’t have to face the charges alone.
How Do I Get off the Sex Offender Registry in Florida?
To get off the sex offender registry in Florida you must have a court overturn the conviction that triggered that conviction. You can achieve this through an appeal of your conviction or a motion for post-conviction relief. Certain requirements must also be met to be removed from the sex offender registry in Florida and they are the following:
Florida’s Romeo and Juliet Law
After 25 years
Out-of-state designation of sex offender removed
Can Sex Offenders Go to Disney World?
Sex Offenders are not allowed to go to Disney World. There are two main reasons why sex offenders are not allowed to go to Disney World. The first reason is that Florida does not allow sex offenders from going to a place where children frequently visit. The second main reason sex offenders are not allowed in Disney World is that Disney World has the right to refuse entry to anyone.
