Kissimmee Lewd and Lascivious Lawyers

Being accused of sexual abuse toward anyone, especially a child, is frightening, stressful, and humiliating. Lewd and lascivious crimes encompass several offenses, including battery, molestation, conduct, or exhibition. If you are being investigated or have been arrested for a sex crime, the time to act is now. You need an experienced lewd and lascivious attorney as your advocate to fight for your rights, your reputation, and your future.

Definitions of Crimes

  • Lewd and lascivious battery, also known as statutory rape, is engaging in sexual activity with someone who is 12- 16 years of age or encouraging someone under the age of 16 to engage in any form of sexual activity.
  • Lewd and lascivious molestation is the intentional touching of someone on the breasts, genitals, or buttocks who is under the age of 16 years old or the enticing, intimidating, or forcing of a person less than 16 years of age to touch the perpetrator in this manner.
  • Lewd and lascivious conduct is the intentional touching of a minor under 16 in a sexual manner without rising to the level of molestation or battery.
  • Lewd and lascivious exhibition is committed when an individual intentionally exposes their genitals or commits any sexual act in the presence of another without physically touching them.

Neither the victim’s consent nor ignorance of the victim’s age is a defense when being prosecuted for these crimes. The age of the perpetrator and the victim, along with the offender’s criminal history, determines the legal charges and penalties.

Perez LaSure Law: Where Law Meets Compassion

If you are being accused of sex crimes, you may be facing harsh consequences. Prosecutors in Florida aggressively pursue sex crimes, and the penalties are stringent. At Perez LaSure Law, our lewd and lascivious lawyers in Kissimmee, Fl, are ready to fight for you. With decades of experience defending those accused of sex crimes, Attorney Migdalia Perez and Attorney Kim LaSure have earned the reputation of being aggressive in the courtroom and compassionate with those they represent.

Defending Against Allegations

If you are arrested for a sex crime, you should decline to give any statements to law enforcement before speaking with our experienced criminal defense lawyers. Even seemingly innocent statements may be misinterpreted, leading to unintended consequences during negotiations with a prosecutor or during a trial.

The alleged victim often makes false accusations due to jealousy, revenge, or leverage in a divorce or custody battle. Additionally, someone making false allegations may have underlying mental health issues. Our legal team will vigorously investigate the accuser for underlying motives as part of our strategy.

Penalties and Collateral Consequences

Lewd and Lascivious crimes are felonies, and the range of penalties can include jail time, imprisonment up to life, probation, lifetime registration on the Florida Sexual Offender Registry through the Department of Law Enforcement, and hefty fines. Collateral consequences include the social stigma and isolation accompanying registration on the Florida Sexual Offender Registry, difficulty finding employment and obtaining housing, and the possibility of affecting your parental rights.
