Briefly Describe Your Situation:

Understanding Bestiality Charges in Florida

The Legal Definition

In Florida, bestiality, also known as zoophilia, is considered a criminal offense. It involves engaging in any sexual activity with an animal. The laws are clear and stringent, and such acts can lead to serious criminal charges.

The Penalties and Consequences

The consequences of a conviction for bestiality can be severe, including potential jail time, fines, and a permanent mark on your criminal record. Additionally, it can lead to societal ostracism and damage to personal relationships.

The Importance of a Skilled Defense Lawyer


Facing such charges requires a defense lawyer who not only has knowledge of Florida’s sex crime laws but also understands the nuances that come with bestiality cases.

Experience in Sex Crimes Defense

We will undertake our own investigation, gathering evidence that may refute the charges or mitigate the circumstances, including questioning the credibility of the evidence presented by the prosecution.

Defending Your Rights and Reputation

Your constitutional rights remain a top priority. If evidence was obtained through unlawful search and seizure, we will fight to have it excluded from the court proceedings.
