An accusation or charge of a sex crime is one of the most serious legal situations you can be in. There is a significant amount of social stigma carried by the mere accusation of a sex crime, which is why hiring a Clearwater criminal defense lawyer is so important. The most effective way to fight charges of a sex crime is to hire a reputable firm to represent you. At Tinny, Meyer & Piccarreto, P.A., our aggressive defense attorneys have the necessary experience and know how to present and defend your case.
The consequences of sex crime convictions are extremely severe, as Florida prosecutors, law enforcement, and judges work to cut down on these offenses. Depending on the nature of the alleged offense, you could find yourself facing extensive time in prison, paying large fines, required probation, restitution to the victim, and counseling if you are convicted. You would also be required to register as a sex offender, which is public knowledge.

The Clearwater criminal defense attorneys at our firm understand exactly how much is on the line and we are committed to helping you avoid a conviction.
