Child Molestation Laws & Penalties

Child molestation, sometimes referred to as lewd and lascivious molestation, is the crime of intentionally touching the breasts, buttocks, or genitals of a child under the age of 16 in a sexually suggestive manner. Child molestation charges will also be filed for forcing or enticing a child to touch the offender. In 2005, Governor Jeb Bush signed a law imposing tougher penalties for convicted child molesters, giving Florida one of the strictest laws in the nation.

If you are convicted of child molestation in Tallahassee, you can expect to face the following penalties:

  • Molesting a child under the age of 12: mandatory sentence of 25 years to life in prison, and once released from prison, you will be required to wear a satellite tracking device for life
  • Molesting a child between the ages of 12 and 15: up to 15 years in prison and satellite tracking only during probation
  • The offender is under 18 but molests a child under 12: up to 15 years in prison
