What Is a Sex Crime?

In Florida, the legal definition of a sex crime (also known as a “sexual offense”) is any unlawful and nonconsensual sexual contact or act.

Sex crimes can be charged as both misdemeanors and felonies, depending on the alleged victim, perpetrator, and nature of the offense. Additionally, there are both forcible and non-forcible sexual offenses.

Forcible Sex Offenses

A forcible sex offense involves violence of some sort.

A common example is getting a person to carry out a sex act by threatening physical harm. Attacking and forcibly raping another adult would be another example.

Forcible Sex Offenses

A non-forcible sex offense does not involve outright violence. Rather, these charges concern sexual acts with someone who cannot legally consent to them.

Under Florida law, minors/underage girls and boys, drugged and intoxicated persons, and people with specific mental disabilities are considered unable to give consent.
