Sarasota Rape Attorney

At the office of lawyer Eric Reisinger, we have a solid understanding of how the state prepares and presents sex crime cases. Before opening our practice, Eric Reisinger spent time as a prosecutor at the State Attorney’s Office, where he learned the strategies and tactics the state uses to obtain a guilty plea or verdict. We can quickly review the evidence against you and accurately assess the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecutor’s case. We know when they have authority to enter into a plea bargain and when they need permission from another party. We will use our experience, knowledge and skill to help you get the results you want.

Our Florida Sex Crimes Defense Practice

We aggressively defend people who are under investigation for or have been charged with sex crimes, including:

  • Rape or sexual battery — We will carefully investigate the facts and circumstances to make certain that law enforcement officers have followed procedure and gathered all relevant evidence. We will look for any evidence that suggests consent, as well as indications that the victim has a history of problems telling the truth. When appropriate, we will also seek and evaluate DNA evidence, if available.
  • Lewd and lascivious behavior — We defend people on all types of charges that fall under lewd and lascivious behavior, including exposing or touching yourself in a lewd way in public. We handle crimes involving lewd or lascivious behavior toward children.

We will vigorously fight to help you avoid being classified as a sex offender, with the requirement that you register as such. The requirement can stay with you for the rest of your life, and can include mandates that you notify police and neighbors, and that you stay away from schools or playgrounds.
