The Seriousness Of Charges For Sexual Offenses

Many crimes constitute a sexual offense in Florida, including, but not limited to:

  • Rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Molestation
  • Possession and distribution of child pornography
  • Soliciting sex to a minor
  • Prostitution
  • Any lewd and lascivious conduct
  • Any sexual misconduct prohibited by law

These types of charges need to be taken seriously, though, because in most cases, you're facing an uphill battle for the rest of your life.

For starters, you'll have to deal with the social stigma of having been accused of committing a sexual offense, which can wreak havoc on your reputation. Then there is the challenge of defending yourself against the onslaught of allegations made by aggressive prosecutors. Finally, if you are convicted of committing a sexual offense, you could face potentially years in prison, then face lifelong sex offender registration, which dictates where you can and cannot live or go within any given community.

Sex crime charges are not something you should take lightly or brush off. They are serious business here in Florida, and you need legal representation that can match your need for solid criminal defense.

Your Right To An Attorney

The most important thing to remember when facing criminal charges is that you always have the right to an attorney. Whether you think you can afford one or not, you deserve a chance to protect your integrity and clear your name of wrongdoing. In order to do that, you need someone who:

  • Understands the seriousness of your situation
  • Will exhaustively investigate the charges against you
  • Will start building your defense immediately
  • Will think outside the box for solutions that are in your best interest
  • Has extensive experience navigating Florida's complex laws and legal system

My name is Jeffrey W. Wiggs, and I've successfully litigated more than 4,000 criminal cases over the years and in each case, I make it a point to meet each of the points above. I don't mess around either. I take sex crimes cases seriously, giving them the time and attention they need in order to present a proper defense. This can only be done if you know the law well and have experience like I do.
