Jessica’s Law and the State of Florida
Under this law, you can be penalized for certain sex offenses with a life sentence, with no possibility of parole.
There are many cases of false or exaggerated accusations when it comes to sex crimes. If you are charged with a crime you’re convinced was committed by someone else, your defense attorney can use certain evidence to refute the prosecution’s case line by line.
As an experienced lawyer, Charles Mead knows how to prepare a tenacious, clever, and aggressive defense that gets desirable results in even the most incriminating cases.
In the State of Florida, it is unlawful to have sexual contact with anyone under the age of 17, the legal age of consent. Because of this law, you can face charges of statutory rape if you are 19 and you have consensual sex with your boyfriend or girlfriend, who is 16 or younger.
