Cape Coral Sexual Assault & Battery Defense Attorneys

Experienced & Results Driven Legal Assistance in Florida

Sexual battery, also known as sexual assault or rape, is considered a felony offense in Florida that is punishable by lengthy prison sentences and expensive fines. Even if a person convicted of sexual battery is released from prison after serving their time, he or she must register with the Florida sexual offender system upon release. Being a convicted felon and a registered sex offender can make it difficult to find employment, obtain housing, and live a normal life.

If you have been accused of or arrested for sexual battery, our Cape Coral criminal defense lawyers at Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law are committed to helping you either get your entire case dismissed or your charges reduced significantly. With more than 30 years of combined experience, we understand what it takes to protect your rights, reputation, and freedom.

Sexual Battery Laws & Penalties

A person can be charged with sexual battery if they commit non-consensual sexual penetration upon someone else. This means any oral, vaginal, or anal penetration with the use of a sexual organ or another object.

Sexual battery carries the most severe penalties for all sex crimes in Florida. The penalties vary depending on the victim’s age, if the victim is handicapped, and if a weapon or force was used during the commission of the crime.

For example, sexual battery upon an individual 12 years of age or older is considered a second-degree felony, which is punishable by a prison sentence of up 15 years and a fine of up to $10,000. If a deadly weapon or physical force is used in the commission of the offense, then it will be a life felony, which results in life imprisonment.

Again, a conviction will also result in registration as a sex offender in Florida.
