Have an Experienced St. Petersburg / Clearwater Sex Crime Lawyer on Your Side

Florida Law treats most sexual offenses as serious crimes. The consequences of conviction for a sex crime can be devastating. Legal penalties may include incarceration, a sex offender registration requirement, and significant restrictions on the ability to travel, use the internet, and obtain housing. Moreover, just the charge itself carries a debilitating social stigma, even though the conduct may be innocent or highly mitigated.

At the Law Offices of Russo Pelletier & Sullivan, we understand that cases involving an allegation of sexual misconduct may be due to a mistake, false allegations, exaggerations, or a law enforcement set-up. In other cases, complex family relationships or contentious divorce proceedings may fuel baseless claims to the authorities.

Some examples of sexual offenses include:
