We can help reduce the stigma of a sex offense charge.

Your future is our primary concern.

Often, people charged wtih a sex offense may carry that stigma for the rest of their lives, even if they were falsely accused and the charges are dropped or they are found not guilty following a jury trial. If you are convicted of a sex crime, which may include a sexual act between two consenting minors, you could be ordered to register as a sex offender or sexual predator for the rest of your life. As your criminal defense lawyers, our first priority is to try to help you avoid prosecution and permanent damage to your life and reputation.

The Fleming approach to sexual misconduct charges is to doeverything possible to make sure the parties involved have access torehabilitation services. We also take every measure to protect teens from lewdand lascivious behavior charges.

Florida laws carry severe penalties for sex offenses.

With the recent enactment of the CyberCrimes Against Children Act of 2007, there is more at stake than ever before if you are charged wtih possession of child pornography and internet solicitation of children. For example, the maximum penalty for possession, a second-degree felony, is now 15 years. For distribution, a first-degree felony, it's a maximum of 30 years. It's therefore important to contact a competent, experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as you know you are under investigation for a sex crime.
