Defense for Miami Rape Charges
Rape and sexual battery are defined as forced, unwanted or nonconsensual intercourse with another person, including oral, anal or vaginal penetration or union with the sexual organ of another. Penetration with a foreign object may also be classified as sexual battery. Actions carried out for lawful medical purposes, however, do not constitute rape or sexual battery.
The penalties for rape and sexual battery in Florida are extremely severe, with certain acts of this regard being classified as capital felonies (punishable by life imprisonment.) The age of the offender and the age of the victim, as well as the circumstances of the act itself will influence potential charges and sentencing that a defendant may face. The defendant's prior criminal record may also affect sentencing.
