The Florida Romeo & Juliet Law

Florida enacted the “Romeo and Juliet” Law in 2007. This law provides an option for certain defendants to avoid having to register as a sex offender due to consensual sexual acts with a minor. At The Law Office of David A. Webster, P.A., our Seminole County criminal defense attorneys are available 24/7 to help answer your questions and discuss your options for seeking a favorable solution.

Factors to determine eligibility for the Romeo & Juliet Law include:

  • The conviction was for either a lewd and lascivious offense or sexual battery
  • The defendant was no more than four years older than the minor when the offense took place
  • The offense involved consensual sexual conduct with a minor between the ages of 14-17 years old
  • The defendant has no other sexual criminal conviction for sexual battery, lascivious exhibition using a computer, or lewd and lascivious behavior

In the end, the judge has discretion when deciding who is eligible for the Romeo and Juliet law. For a variety of sexual crime charges, we can passionately investigate the incident and work hard to defend you in court. Our Seminole County criminal defense lawyers are respected in the community and possess a thorough knowledge of federal and state laws pertaining to sex crimes.

Is Sexting legal in Florida?

Florida does not allow sexting by and between minors. A first violation will lead to noncriminal penalties. Prohibited acts of sexting include receiving, sending. The first violation of this act will lead to the minor receiving a noncriminal citation that outlines the following options: complete eight hours of community service, pay a $60 penalty, participate in a cyber-safety program, or contest (challenge) the citation in court. The minor has 30 days to complete one of the options.
