Florida Sex Crimes

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.
