Posted By:

The recent election of Donald Trump has prompted protests throughout our nation. In New York, Los Angeles and other major cities, thousands have taken to the streets to voice their displeasure with the election’s outcome. Some of these protests have been more peaceful than others, but in many states dozens of people were arrested and many are facing criminal charges.

What Florida Means by “Sexual Battery” – and How It’s Penalized
Posted By:

Sexual harassment. Sexual assault. Sexual battery. Rape.

 

These days, it seems like stories about high-profile sex crime allegations are everywhere.

But though the media often uses many of these terms interchangeably, they mean very different things. Not only that, but the legal definition can change depending on how the laws are written from state-to-state.
