If you have been arrested in the Orlando area for a violation of Florida Statute 794.011(4)(f) or Sexual Battery on a Physically Incapacitated Person, you will need attorneys experienced in providing competent and aggressive representation! The attorney advocates at the law office of Finebloom & Haenel can provide this representation.
Performing a sexual act on a physically incapacitated or physically helpless person without consent is a felony of the first degree punishable by up to 30 years in prison. “Physically incapacitated” means bodily impaired or handicapped and substantially limited in ability to resist or flee. “Physically helpless” means unconscious, asleep, or for any other reason physically unable to communicate unwillingness to an act. Sexual acts include:
- oral, anal or vaginal penetration by a person; or
- union with the sexual organs of another; or
- penetration by use of an object.
If you perform any of these acts with a person who at the time you are performing the sex act is impaired, handicapped or unconscious you can be found guilty of this crime. This crime is often charged when there is an allegation that a nurse or health care worker has taken advantage of a paralyzed person or a person under anesthesia. But those are not the only conditions under which a charge such as this can be brought.
SEXUAL CRIMES ARE ONE OF THE HARDEST TO DEFEND! There is great sympathy for alleged victims and it can be extremely difficult for you to defend yourself. If you are found guilty of this crime, you can be forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life! You can be restricted as to places you may live, lose civil liberties and lose professional licenses that you may hold. Do not hire an amateur!!
