Are you facing child molestation charges?
The community's reaction to even a suggestion of improper conduct with regard to a child results in passionate emotional responses and condemnation.

Florida prosecutors take such an allegation seriously and the penalties for a conviction are most severe. If you have been accused of this offense or think you might be, don't wait to consult a Miami sex crime lawyer who is highly experienced in handling this kind of defense.
