Defending Clients in the Face of Serious Charges
In Florida, much like in other states, abuse is a serious crime. A conviction can have lasting impacts on your life, including your ability to secure a job or a place to live. If you are convicted of sexual abuse, you will have to submit to mandatory, lifelong sex offender registry.

Types of Abuse Charges My Firm Handles
Throughout my decades in practice, I have represented many clients facing abuse charges. My firm has handled various high-profile cases, including those involving teacher-student abuse. As your attorney, I employ an aggressive approach to trial, all while working to defend your constitutional rights.
Malcolm Anthony, P.A. handles abuse charges involving:
- Child abuse, including neglect, physical mistreatment, and child sexual abuse
- Elder abuse, including nursing home abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, and emotional abuse
- Sexual abuse, including rape, molestation, sexual assault, and child sexual abuse
- Educator abuse, including statutory rape, molestation, and inappropriate contact
Prosecutors, judges, and juries all tend to seek the maximum punishment possible in abuse cases. Penalties for abuse range depending on the type of offense, as well as the severity and other related factors. However, in most cases, a conviction can result in imprisonment, fines, probation, and sex offender registration. In certain cases, such as sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12 by an adult over the age of 18, a conviction can lead to a death penalty sentence.
