What Are the Penalties for Sex Crimes in Florida?
The penalties for a sex crime conviction in Florida can be severe, even if it is a first offense. In many cases, the charges will be escalated to a more serious offense depending on the circumstances surrounding the crime. For example, a person who is accused of an offense involving a minor may face harsher penalties than a similar crime involving an adult victim. Additionally, if a person is convicted of a sex crime and they have prior convictions, they could face increased penalties.
The penalties for a sex crime conviction can include:
- Jail time
- Sex offender registration
A person who is convicted of a sex crime could be required to register as a sex offender. This is a special registry that lists the names of people who have been convicted of sex crimes. People who are listed on this registry are subject to certain conditions, such as being prohibited from living within a certain distance of schools, parks, or other places where children are known to congregate. Additionally, their information will be made available to the public, which could impact their employment prospects and ability to move.
