Sex Crimes in Florida

The state of Florida has enacted laws against various types of sexual offenses; these offenses have been divided into three general categories.

Florida Sex Crime Categories Include:

  • Lewd/lascivious acts: Involve sexual activity with a minor younger than 16 such as battery, molestation, exhibition, or lewd conduct. Ignorance of the minor’s age is not an accepted defense.
  • Sexual battery and/or rape: Defined as having non-consensual sex with another person through force, coercion, or when the victim is incapacitated. This charge can be enhanced under aggravating circumstances, such as when committed with a deadly weapon, committed against a child under 12, or when the victim has been drugged.
  • Illegal sexual activity with minors/statutory rape: Statutory rape consists of a person aged 24 or older having sex with a minor aged 16 or 17. Ignorance of the minor’s age cannot be used as a defense.

  • Divorce Case

    “My Fiancé was going through a very rough divorce before we met Mrs. Fisher. He had a Lawyer who didn’t care how his case turns out which wasn’t fear to us. He met with Mrs. Fisher and she took on his case. She made sure her and her staff were on top on everything. They kept us informed about any little changes and made sure we didn’t stress. She didn’t just come to court when it was time to come to court, she was hands on with everything from the beginning to the end. We didn’t know what our outcome would be with the first lawyer, but with Mrs. Fisher, we had confidence that everything would work out for the best. If you’re looking for a great, respectful, outstanding, hands on lawyer, Mrs. Fisher and her staff is your best go.You can stop your worrying and be able to relax while they handle it all. I’m so Grateful for her staff because now my spouse is divorced and we are now planning our wedding. Thank you Mrs. Fisher and your staff! My family and I will be forever Grateful. L. Edwards”

  • I have dealt with MANY legal professionals and I rank Ms. FIsher's dignity and integrity at the top.



  • Working with her was a real blessing for us.

    “This law office is amazing! Ms. Fisher was so caring regarding my son's child support case. She guided us through the process and has given him a new lease on life since he no longer has an enormous amount of back support to pay. The staff was courteous and helpful every step of the way. Even in court when the judge was being rude, she maintained her professional demeanor and "stuck to her guns". Working with her was a real blessing for us.”

    “The staff was very professional and Jody was amazingly fast in resolving my legal worries. My issues came up during the Covid -19 pandemic - the staff provided great social distancing, protecting me as a client while still effectively working on my case.”
