Few crimes strike a nerve with everybody, but sex offenses are one of them. Even for those people who don’t necessarily care what others think of them, there’s something different about the public perception that comes when someone is accused or convicted of a sex crime. It can have profound implications, even beyond the criminal penalties imposed. Reputation, employment, family — these are all impacted when someone is charged with a sex offense. All crimes are serious, but sex offenses — especially in Florida — need the attention of a serious criminal defense attorney.
My goal is not only to provide effective service, but to help you avoid any stigma imposed by society.
The giving or receiving of one’s body for sexual activity for hire (except between spouses) is a crime, and it’s one of the oldest crimes in Florida. Even in 2015, the old adage “it’s your body, do want you want with it” doesn’t carry any weight in a court of law.
Not only are prostitution-related activities illegal in Florida, there are special police task forces, or V.I.C.E. Squads, that target areas, set up undercover operations, and make hundreds of arrests. Male or female, the law doesn’t discriminate. But this is not all the police are doing. The police are now trolling websites that commonly advertise escorts and trying to make easy arrests.
The police are good at what they do. They will deceive you, mislead you, and get you to let your guard down. Don’t be fooled —police don’t have to identify themselves upon request, and entrapment, while a real legal defense, is seldom applicable. To beat these cases, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney.

According to Florida law, “human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery.” Typically, alleged victims of human trafficking are forced to work in prostitution or the sexual entertainment industry. This work is often accompanied by exploitation of other labor-related activities.
Human trafficking is a first-degree felony. The Florida Legislature has tasked the Florida Supreme Court, The Florida Bar, and relevant state agencies, like the State Attorney’s Office, to implement specifically designed programs to combat human trafficking efforts.
The federal government passed specific legislation, known as the Trafficking Victims Protected Act, to combat these crimes, too. If you or someone you care about is suspected of human trafficking, you don’t want to battle the government alone. Call Redavid Law, PLLC today. (305) 938-9939.

The crime of indecent exposure occurs when someone exposes or exhibits his or her sexual organs in a vulgar or indecent manner. The exposure can occur in a public or private place
Indecent exposure is a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 364 days in jail. Mere exposure of a sexual organ is insufficient under the law, so often these prosecutions turn on subjective interpretations of ambiguous behavior.

Sexual Battery, or rape as it is commonly referred to, is the non-consensual penetrating (oral, anal, or vaginal) of another person. The consequences for sexual battery in Florida are severe. Imprisonment can range from years to life, or even death.
Facts matter in these cases. The age of the alleged victim; whether any force, threat, or weapon was used; or the alleged victim’s mental capacity are all things that factor into the equation. These crimes almost always arise when a complaining witness notifies the authorities. The government does not take these accusations lightly, and neither should you. Penetration need not be by a sexual organ; in fact, “any other object” will suffice under the law if it penetrated the anal or vaginal cavity of another person. Consent is also commonly misunderstood. The law doesn’t require an alleged victim to physically resist you. Building a successful defense is crucial, and it’s always best to start early.
Chances are that if you have been convicted of committing, or attempting to commit, soliciting, or conspiring to commit a specific type of sex crime, you may be forced to register as a sex offender. These crimes include, but are not limited to, sexual misconduct with a person that has a developmental disability; physician-patient or employee-patient sexual misconduct; if kidnapping was involved; or if a minor or child was involved. The reporting and registration requirements are serious — so much so that failure to adhere to the registration laws can be a criminal offense in and of itself. Many people labeled as sex offenders have trouble finding jobs or permissible places to live.
Florida takes sex crimes so seriously that certain people may qualify for civil penalties in addition to criminal penalties. If you think that means money, not prison, think again. The State can petition that a person who meets specific criteria be held indefinitely as a sexually violent predator. In Florida, this law is commonly referred to as the Jimmy Ryce Act.
The process is complicated, and can have a profound impact on your life. Call the Redavid Law, PLLC to discuss your case. (305) 938-9939.
