Statutory Rape Nationally Recognized. Result Oriented. 

Tallahassee Statutory Rape Defense Lawyer

Working with the Prosecution to Reach Reasonable Agreements

Statutory rape is one of the most commonly fabricated sex crimes, leaving many innocent people behind bars. Because the state does not consider a minor (a person younger than 18) to be of age to give consent, even consensual sexual activity can lead to statutory rape charges. This also holds true if the minor lied about their age, or if the “offender” was given reasonable cause to believe the minor was 18.

You will need an aggressive Tallahassee statutory rape defense attorney who not only has a great deal of criminal defense experience, but who also knows how to effectively fight these types of charges. It can be very difficult to win a statutory rape case, but with the right attorney, your chances of obtaining a winning verdict increase dramatically.

If you have been accused of statutory rape, it’s crucial that you speak with an attorney right away. Schedule your consultation with the attorneys at Jansen & Davis, P.A. today!

Florida Statutory Rape Laws & Penalties

In Florida’s statutory rape law Statute 794.04, exempts individuals close in age, allowing minors age 16+ to legally engage in sexual activity with adults no older than age 23. This law stands regardless of whether or not he or she gave their consent or gave you reasonable cause to believe he or she was of legal age.

The penalties for statutory rape typically depend on the age of both the offender and the victim, but in general include 15 years to life in prison, up to $15,000 in fines, and lifetime registration as a sex offender. In cases involving serious sexual battery of a minor, the charges can even include the death penalty.
