A Sex Crimes Conviction Can Impact Your Entire Future
A sex crime is one of the most serious accusations you can face. Just an accusation itself can have a devastating impact on your personal and professional reputation. If convicted, you could face lengthy prison sentences and a permanent criminal record, and you may have to register with the Florida and National Sex Offender Registry.

As The Florida Bar board-certified criminal trial law attorneys, we deeply understand our criminal justice system and local laws. You can trust us to fight tirelessly for your rights and freedom.
Finding The Best Defense To Suit Your Needs
A sex crime is a criminal offense where unwanted and nonconsensual touching occurs that results in the sexual gratification of the offending party. Sex crimes can also involve threats, the use of force or any other crime that has a sexual component.
We can defend you against a variety of sex crimes, including:
- Sexual assault and rape
- Prostitution and solicitation
- Child pornography
- Statutory rape
The consequences of a sex crime conviction in Florida depend on the crime itself and your criminal history. If you are charged with a felony sex offense, you must register with the National Sex Offender Registry, which is public and prevents you from living or working in certain areas. You also will likely face a mandatory prison sentence and probation after release.
At Norgard & Chastang, we take on complex sex crime defense cases and use innovative strategies to develop a strong defense for our clients. Depending on the facts and circumstances of your case, we may pursue defenses related to false charges, faulty memory, illegal search and seizure and entrapment.
