Don’t Tackle Complex, Serious Charges Alone
Soliciting sexual activity with someone under 18 years old, like other sex crimes, is a serious accusation that can have lifelong consequences. Where minors are involved, maximum sentences are often used, and penalties are harsh.
At Mandell Law, we can help you understand your options and ensure your rights are upheld throughout the process.
Strong Defense Against Serious Charges
Sex crimes against minors are taken very seriously in Florida. If you are accused of soliciting a minor or possession of child pornography, it is imperative to have a skilled defense attorney on your side.
The Law: What You Should Know
Physical contact with the minor is not required to be convicted of solicitation; merely encouraging them to engage in sexual acts, even if they are willing participants, is enough to be charged. The solicitation doesn’t even have to be in person — communication over the internet can be enough. Further, traveling to meet a minor for sex is a second-degree offense, punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Conviction also often results in being forced to register as a sex offender.
At Mandell Law, we have the resources and experience to help you defend against these charges. We can aid you in the fight for your future.
