Teen accuses registered sex offender of sexual battery

Tallahassee police officers searched the home of a 66-year-old man after arresting him. They were investigating the sexual battery accusations of a Florida teenager who said that he took nude photographs of her. The activities had allegedly gone on during the past year. Inside the man's home, police looked for evidence but failed to find any printed or digital pictures of the young woman.

The arrest report revealed a history of past sex crime convictions. He had already been a registered sex offender at the time of his most recent arrest. An out-of-state arrest recorded accusations from multiple teenagers and adult women who claimed that he wanted to photograph them while engaged in sex acts with his grandson.

The man allegedly posed as a photographer from a modeling agency when he attempted to lure women into picture-taking sessions. In another incident, he reportedly photographed a naked girl in 2004, according to an interview with the now-adult woman conducted by deputies from the Leon County Sheriff's Department.

A conviction on sex crime charges could have lifelong consequences for a person that inhibit employment opportunities and require ongoing registration with authorities. A criminal defense attorney familiar with criminal law could provide representation that protects the person's rights during a legal process that involves the potential for lasting social stigma. By consulting an attorney, the defendant could learn the exact nature of the criminal charges and their possible penalties, which could make a difference when determining whether pleading not guilty as opposed to seeking a plea bargain would be appropriate.
