It is astounding the number of people who sit behind prison bars today accused of sex-related crimes they did not commit. While these types of offenses are punished severely, it is all too easy for an innocent person to be falsely accused. Those found guilty may be sentenced to a few years in prison, or a few decades. Even worse for many is that fact they are labeled a sex offender, and shunned by society. Registered sex offenders face extreme difficulty when it comes to employment, housing, and other aspects of their lives. It is literally a life sentence.
With more than 30 years of combined experience, Adams & Luka has successfully represented clients charged with a wide array of sex crimes including, but not limited to:
Any individual convicted of a sex crime charged as a felony will be required to register as a sex offender for life, and comply with registration laws not only in Florida, but throughout the U.S. Prison time is mandatory as well, and the time served will depend on the specific offense as well as other factors such as criminal history. Probation is another penalty which imposes a curfew, restricts where you may choose to live, and more. Essentially, the more severe the crime you are accused of committing, the harsher the penalties.
