What Are Sex Crimes?

Florida law defines sex crimes as instances of misconduct, violence, or abuse of a sexual nature against an adult or minor. Depending on the severity of the crime, alleged offenders could face jail time or be added to the sex offender registry.

The most commonly prosecuted sex crimes in Fort Lauderdale and their definitions include:

  • Child pornography: the creation, participation, or sale of photographic or video content involving sexual misconduct with a child
  • Internet solicitation: the sale of sexual acts through an online forum
  • Statutory rape: actions of a sexual nature between an adult and a minor
  • Lewd or lascivious molestation: sexual contact between a child younger than 16 and an adult
  • Prostitution and solicitation: the participation or sale of sexual favors
  • Sexual battery and rape: committing non-consensual oral, anal, or vaginal contact with another person
  • Child molestation: sexual contact with a child under 16
  • Revenge porn: a form of harassment where one person maliciously publishes photos or videos of another on the internet without their consent or knowledge
  • Date rape: non-consensual sexual acts within a dating relationship
  • Unlawful sexual activity with a minor: when an adult 24 years or older engages in sexual misconduct with a minor younger than 17

The above crimes often result in hefty fines and prison time, especially if there is evidence that the alleged offense happened with a minor. In addition to a criminal record and time behind bars, convicted offenders face life-long stigma on the sex offender registry.

Ft. Lauderdale Sex Offender Registry

Even after offenders have served their sentence, the court may order them to register as sex offenders. Registration may be for many years or life, depending on the final verdict from the court.

It is also important to understand that registered sex offenders face other penalties. For example, sex offenders must notify local law enforcement if they move or relocate, and when they do, that information is posted publicly.

Most registries also have restrictions on where offenders can live. Especially for crimes against minors, offenders may not be allowed to live within a certain distance of playgrounds, schools, or areas where children congregate.

Landlords and other housing authorities don’t view registered sex offenders favorably. If you have a record that includes a sex crime, houses, condos, apartments, and duplexes may be out of your reach.

While it may seem tempting to avoid registering, Skipping out on the registry is a third-degree felony punishable by time in prison.
