Sexual Battery Jacksonville FL

Experienced Sexual Battery Attorneys Jacksonville Florida

Sexual Battery is also known as rape. Under Florida law, sexual battery is sexual penetration without the other person’s consent, with the threat of a weapon, or under an enumerated number of circumstances, which deal with positions of power or trust over another. 

First degree felony battery is committed in one of the following situations:

(A) When the victim is physically helpless to resist.
(B) When the offender coerces the victim to submit by threatening to use force or violence likely to cause serious personal injury on the victim, and the victim reasonably believes that the offender has the present ability to execute the threat.
(C) When the offender coerces the victim to submit by threatening to retaliate against the victim, or any other person, and the victim reasonably believes that the offender has the ability to execute the threat in the future.
(D) When the offender, without the prior knowledge or consent of the victim, administers or has knowledge of someone else administering to the victim any narcotic, anesthetic, or other intoxicating substance which mentally or physically incapacitates the victim.
(E) When the victim is mentally defective and the offender has reason to believe this or has actual knowledge of this fact.
(F) When the victim is physically incapacitated.
(G) When the offender is a law enforcement officer, correctional officer, or correctional probation officer.
(H) And any second degree sexual battery is the result of sexual intercourse against one’s consent without the use of physical force or violence likely to cause serious bodily injury.
