A Strong Defense Against Sex Tourism Charges
Traveling to a region for the purpose of engaging in illegal sexual activity such as prostitution or sex with minors, commonly referred to as sex tourism, is a serious crime.
As with any sex offense, the penalties for a sex tourism conviction are severe. In addition to a prison sentence, you would be required to register as a sex offender in the jurisdiction(s) where you live, work and were convicted. In addition to the social stigma, it is likely that you would be unable to find and keep employment or even a place to live.
With your future at stake, it is critical that you begin working with experienced, respected sex tourism defense attorneys at O’Brien Hatfield Reese, PA, in Tampa and Orlando and throughout Florida as soon as you become aware that you are the subject of an investigation.

We may also be able to demonstrate evidence of entrapment in the context of a sting operation or that the sex act was consensual.
Whichever defense option is best, we will fight aggressively to protect your interests, for now and for the future.
