Fort Myers Sex Offense Lawyers
Providing Effective Representation for Decades
Being unjustly accused of any crime will leave you with a horrible sinking feeling as you try frantically to prove your innocence. However, being wrongfully charged with a sex crime is many times worse. If you have been accused of a sex offense in the state of Florida, this can have dramatic impacts on every single aspect of your life and liberty, from your ability to travel, where you can live, what job you can get, and even who you can talk to or build relationships with.
If you have been wrongfully accused of committing this type of crime, you should consult with experienced sex offense attorneys in Fort Myers immediately. Even if you had absolutely nothing to do with the crime, the delicate and vulnerable condition of at-risk victims like children means that the judge and jury will automatically treat you with more suspicion and bias. This is why it is critical to gain the rapid support of our skilled criminal defense lawyers at Aiken & O’Halloran as soon as possible.

Florida Sex Crime Penalties
When it comes to dealing with sex crimes, the state of Florida has set up some of the strictest laws in the country. One particular example of this is that of Jessica’s Law, placed in 2005 to memorialize the tragic case of Jessica Lunsford, murdered at nine years of age.
This law placed even harsher punishments and restrictions for previously registered sex offenders in the state, maximized penalties for new cases, and even ratified the use of enforcing electronic monitoring devices for all offenders on the sex crime registry.
First-time offenders would receive a minimum of 25 years in prison and a maximum of life under the new law. While such laws are rightfully designed to protect children, they can also terribly damage the lives of those who are innocent but wrongfully accused.

Taking an Aggressive Approach

However, our sex offense lawyers in Fort Myers take a determined, aggressive approach to truly examine the details of the case and pursue an outcome that could grant you complete freedom from charges before looking at options that minimize penalties. By our direct, vigorous manner, our attorneys at Aiken & O’Halloran have succeeded in helping many innocent victims be granted their freedom.
