Florida sex crimes are extremely prevalent in terms of their sheer numbers within the criminal legal system. Statistics show that on an annual basis, more than 12,000 people are charged with some type of violent sex crime. This statistical trend is steady and disturbing, and the penalties associated with these offenses are severe.
If you have been charged with any sort of sex crime in Florida, the best course of action you can take is to contact the firm of Anabelle Dias & Associates, P.A. immediately. The firm offers student discounts, affordable payment plans and is available for contact 24 hours per day. The attorneys at the firm are also experienced in dealing with these serious matters, which is also crucial in regards to the overall defense you put forth.
The following are a few examples of charges that can be brought against a defendant in Florida, and if a defendant is ultimately convicted of any of these charges, specific steps are in place to regulate the convicted defendant after he or she is released from prison.
If you are convicted of a sex crime in Florida, many times you will be required to register with the state and county as a sex offender. This program was designed to protect a convicted defendant's neighbors and local community by providing notice to them that someone who has been convicted of these charges is living amongst them.
As you see above, failure to comply with this registration requirement is a serious crime in the eyes of the law, and you will need experienced legal help in order to maintain full compliance with this requirement. Many times, released sex offenders, aside from the registration requirement, are prevented from any contact with children, are not allowed within a certain distance of schools or day care centers and are generally prevented from being a part of any situation that could involve a risk of another commission of a sex crime.
Overall, whether you have just been charged with a sex crime or you have been convicted of a sex crime and recently released, you need to understand how to proceed, as a simple lack of understanding will not be a viable defense for any violation.
That is why you need to contact the attorneys at Anabelle Dias P.A. immediately for the help you need. The firm will work with you on any payment plans that are necessary, as financial concerns should not be the reason you do not seek the legal help to which you are entitled under the Constitution.
