SEXUAL BATTERY AND RAPE

Sexual battery is a serious Florida sex crime arising out of nonconsensual sexual intercourse. Most often referred to as rape, but referred to in Florida law as sexual battery, this offense is most often charged as a felony, resulting in a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment in state prison as well as sex offender registration - often for life.

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.

Penalties for Rape and Sexual Battery in Florida:

The penalties for rape and sexual battery in Florida are extremely severe, with certain acts 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.
