If you are wondering if you can afford to fight a sex crime charge in Florida, you should be asking: Can you afford not to? Failing to fight a sex crime allegation can result in more than just a prison term or the stigma of sex offender registration.

If you have been arrested, or if you are under investigation for a sex crime in Florida, you should know that the police and prosecutors are under tremendous public pressure to be seen as tough on sex crimes.

Do not volunteer information to the police or make any statements without first securing the services of a proven criminal defense lawyer. At The Bigney Law Firm, we fight for the rights of men, women and juvenile clients facing allegations of serious sex crimes, including:

Internet Sex Crimes


Online solicitation of a minor and Internet child pornography charges seem to be on the rise. These are often complex cases involving tens of thousands of pieces of evidence, such as e-mails, direct messages, chat room logs, image files and other digital information.

It can take a highly experienced team of trial lawyers to avoid being buried by the prosecution during the discovery phase of an Internet sex crime case. We have the skill and proven track record of success to stand up for your rights and fight for your freedom and your future.


Sex Offender Registration

If you are convicted or plead guilty to a sex crime in Florida, you will almost certainly be forced to register as a sex offender…for the rest of your life. Sex offender registration can make it difficult or impossible to live, work or go to school in peace. Failure to register can land you in jail. Your future may be changed forever without the help of a lawyer who will fight for you.

In Florida, the Jimmy Ryce Involuntary Civil Commitment for Sexually Violent Predators' Treatment and Care Act (commonly known as the Jimmy Ryce Act) allows state attorneys, Florida Department of Corrections and the Department of Children and Family Services to file civil proceedings against individuals who have been convicted of a sex crime upon their release from incarceration.

Civil commitment to a secure "treatment facility" is supposed to prevent dangerous sexual predators from re-offending. In fact, it is a way to keep those convicted of sex crimes behind bars long after their prison term has elapsed, and potentially forever.
