Sex Crimes

                                          What is the Florida "Romeo & Juliet" Law?

The Romeo & Juliet law allows for the removal of the requirement to register as a sexual offender or sexual predator under certain circumstances. The law allows certain offenders who specifically meet the criteria of the statute to ask the court for relief from the requirement of registering as a sexual offender/predator.

Several criteria are specified including: the victim in the case was at least 13 and not more than 17 years of age, is no more than four years younger than the offender, and the sexual activity was consensual. The qualifying offense must be the only sex crime on the offender's record requiring registration.
