Being charged with rape or any other sex crime has the potential to alter your life forever. The penalties are severe. Working with a seasoned criminal defense team and sex crime lawyer, however, gives you an advantage that outweighs trying to fight these charges on your own.

Why Should I Hire a Lawyer?

Allegations of rape mean that the victim in the case believes that he or she was forced into engaging in a sexual act without consent. Prosecutors will look at all of the details, no matter how slight, in order to secure a conviction. They will also look into the circumstances surrounding the incident, for example, use the fact that drugs or alcohol were used in order to force the victim to engage in the act.

According to Fl. Stat. Ann. §794.011, there are the penalties for rape:

  • Felony charges
  • Hefty fines costing thousands of dollars
  • Lengthy prison sentence, including possible life
  • Registration as a sex offender

Perhaps the most damning of all the consequences is the forced registration as a sex offender. This will become public knowledge. Neighbors, colleagues, associates, and acquaintances can all access this information, forever branding the convicted person. You do not want these types of charges to alter your reputation or your life like this—you must fight these charges! To begin, your best bet is to contact a Fort Lauderdale sex crime lawyer.
