Child Molestation

Fort Lauderdale Child Molestation Lawyer

Child molestation is one of fastest growing criminal charges in the state of Florida. This sex crime is defined by law as any type of sexual contact or advances with a child under 16 years of age. Being accused of child molestation can leave a negative mark on your reputation and may substantially alter your plans for your future. You need to retain the help of a Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney immediately after you have been accused of child molestation in order to control the damage caused and to fight your charges.

Penalties for Child Molestation

If you are found to be guilty of child molestation, a third degree felony offense, you may face anywhere from five years in prison to a life sentence. The time that you are required to serve in prison is dependent on the specific charges that are brought against you and other factors involved with your case. No matter what, you will be required to complete a mandatory sex offender registration as a sexual predator, offender or both. Whether you realize it or not, this title will remain with you for the rest of your life and may hinder your plans for the future.
