If you have been arrested in the Orlando area for a violation of Florida Statute 794.05, generally referred to as “Unlawful Sexual Activity with a Minor” you will need an aggressive defense team to protect your rights! When you hire the attorneys of Finebloom & Haenel to defend you against this charge, you get experienced, aggressive and experienced representation.
Unlawful sexual activity with a minor is the crime charged when an individual over the age of 24 has sex with a minor between the ages of 16 and 17. Consent is NOT a defense to this charge. It is also not a defense if the minor lies about their age!!
Many times this crime can be the result of a one night stand at a party where alcohol is consumed by all of the parties (even the person who is underage). This situation is common between individuals who are in a serious relationship that a parent disproves of or in situations where the minor becomes pregnant and seeks assistance from the State (such as food stamps, Medicaid or WIC).
No matter what circumstance brought you to be charged with this crime, it is very serious. Unlawful sexual activity is a second degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison! Conviction can result in your being labeled a sex offender or even a sexual predator. This means you would have to register for the rest of your life no matter where you lived or risk another felony charge. You could be prohibited from living within certain areas. If you have children you may be banned from attending their school functions or extra curricular activities as a result of this charge.
