Sexting Is Not Just Innocent Fun

Flirting is not what it used to be. In this age of advanced electronics, some couples have replaced flirting with texting nude photos or sexually explicit messages. Between consenting adults, this may be little more than playful teasing. However, the risks are much higher when those involved are under the age of 18.

At The Law Office of Brian R. Toung, P.A., we recognize the harm sexting can do to a young life. However, we also know that zealous enforcement of the law can lead to criminal charges against those who had no ill intentions. Our lawyer will handle each case with sensitivity and discretion as he fights to protect the rights of those facing the potentially devastating consequences of a sex offense charge.

Teen Sexting And Florida Laws

Teens who exchange digital images of themselves nude or in sexually explicit poses may face sexting violations. The charges and penalties under Florida's complicated statutes increase in severity for subsequent convictions. Law enforcement may take special interest in someone over the age of 18 who is sexting with a minor, even if they are dating. A conviction for any sex offense can mean a lifetime of struggle and grief. Defending against such charges is a challenge, and attorney Brian R. Toung is prepared to advocate for your child.

Sexting Between Adults And Minors

The situation becomes even more critical when an adult is accused of sexting with a minor. Receiving nude or explicit images of a minor or sending such images to someone under the age of 18 constitutes child pornography, a felony conviction with a lifetime of ramifications. Brian knows how determined prosecutors are to obtain convictions in these cases, and he will work just as resolutely to defend your rights.

Serious Defense Against Serious Charges

Whether you are a parent in Daytona Beach whose child is facing sexting charges or an adult charged with more serious sex crimes related to sexting, the best option is to have a legal advocate who has knowledge of sexting laws and the discretion with which Florida courts can act.
