Florida law defines sexual battery as a battery that requires force or violence that is inherent in the accomplishment of penetration or union.

Sexual Battery - Possible Penalties

Sexual battery is considered a sex crime and entails many of the same consequences as other sex crimes. A particularly troublesome result from a sexual battery conviction is the mandatory registration on the state sex offender list, which is accessible to the public. There are various types of sexual batteries, which include different penalties. Some of those types and penalties are as follows:

  1. A person 18 years of age or older, who commits sexual battery on a victim, who is under 12 years of age, and in that action injures the victim's sexual organs, commits a capital felony.
  2. A person less than 18 years of age, who commits sexual battery on a victim, who is under 12 years of age, and in that action injures the victim's sexual, organs commits a life felony.
  3. A person who commits sexual battery upon a victim who is 12 years of age or older, without the victim's consent, and in the process of the sexual battery uses or threatens to use a deadly weapon, or uses actual physical force likely to cause serious personal injury, commits a life felony.
  4. A person who commits sexual battery upon a person 12 years of age or older, without the victim's consent, under any of the following circumstances, commits a felony of the first degree.
  5.  A person who commits sexual battery upon a person 12 years of age or older, without the victim's consent, and in the process thereof does not use physical force and violence likely to cause serious personal injury, commits a felony of the second degree.
