If you have been arrested in the Orlando area and accused of violating Florida Statute 827.071 banning sexual performance by a child, you will need an aggressive and knowledgeable defense team on your side. Because the public finds these cases so offensive, the State will use every available resource to prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. The law offices of Finebloom & Haenel have the resources and know-how to match this relentless prosecution.
- According to the statute, a person is guilty of the use of a child in a sexual performance if, knowing the character and content thereof, he or she employs, authorizes, or induces a child less than 18 years of age to engage in a sexual performance;
- Being a parent, legal guardian, or custodian of such child, consents to the participation by such child in a sexual performance.
Whoever violates this section of the law is guilty of a felony of the second degree, punishable by up to 15 years in a Florida state prison.
Furthermore, a person is guilty of promoting a sexual performance by a child when, knowing the character and content thereof, he or she produces, directs, or promotes any performance which includes sexual conduct by a child less than 18 years of age. Whoever violates this subsection is guilty of a felony of the second degree, punishable by up to 15 years in a Florida state prison.
The stakes are very high in cases such as these. The allegations are serious and embarrassing. In addition to social stigma, these cases often are reported and closely watched by the media. Pre-trial release conditions may include not being able to visit your own children or be in the same room with any minor child without supervision, if you are able to be released at all.
