What is Capital Sexual Battery?
Capital sexual battery is the act of engaging in sex with a minor under the age of 12. A conviction for this offense carries a sentence of life in prison without the chance for parole. Neither ignorance of the victim's age nor gaining his/her permission is an acceptable defense in either case. Other sex crimes carry severe penalties as well. These include prison and/or sex offender probation. All too often, those accused of committing sex crimes are actually unwitting victims of retribution by the false accusations of former partners or spouses. We have the experience to aggressively defend against such cases. Our West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyers have extensive experience defending sex crimes.
