Florida Date Rape Lawyer

Representation Backed by 150+ Years' Combined Experience

In Florida, engaging in non-consensual sexual encounters with a date is considered to be a crime. This includes sexual encounters through force and unwanted sexual contact as well. Date rape can occur in any number of situations. Many believe that date rape only occurs between strangers on a first date, but this is not true. Date rape can occur in a long term relationship that has lasted months or even years. The offending party can use a number of means in order to initiate sexual contact, from drugs to physical force. Date rape drugs are an all too common type of drug used to make a victim lose consciousness. These drugs make a victim unable to mentally, or physically, deny the offender, and can even lead to death of the victim if ingested in too large a quantity. Date rape can occur almost casually, without warning, or can be the result of a rejection to the offender's sexual advances.

If you have been charged with date rape in Florida, you may be facing serious consequences that include imprisonment, fines, and a ruined reputation.

The Penalties for Date Rape in Florida

There are a variety of penalties for being convicted of date rape in the state of Florida. These penalties can be anything from a lengthy prison sentence to a large fine. If convicted of date rape, you will have to register with the state Sex Offender Registry, where citizens of the state of Florida will be able to track where you move and your current location. If the victim was under the age of twelve years old, the penalties will be increased and the charge upped to first degree felony date rape, for which there is a life sentence penalty.

If drugs were used in the perpetration of the crime, the sentence and the penalty will be increased. The same goes if the victim was mentally disabled, physically handicapped, or if violence or force were used to assert sexual will, or if weapons were used to commit the crime.
