Sex-related offenses in Florida are classified as felonies. In addition to the harsh penalties associated with felony convictions, sex offenses result in the most restrictive and devastating sanctions.
In Florida, registration as a sexual offender or sexual predator is usually for life. Although the State has its own offender and predator restrictions, counties and cities are allowed to impose their own additional sanctions. In many counties, this means you cannot be within a certain distance from parks, playgrounds, schools, and many other places. Being convicted of a sex crime will drastically affect your freedom of movement, and it will have severe consequences that affect every member of your family.
