Relief for teen sexual offenders

There is relief under the Romeo and Juliet Law for those convicted of sexual offenses when the age difference between consensual partners is 4 years or less. The Romeo and Juliet Law, passed in 2007, Florida Statute 943.04354 (Title XLVII Criminal Procedures and Corrections), addresses the removal of the requirement to register as a sexual offender or sexual predator in special circumstances. Take a look at Romeo & Juliet under ‘Hot Topics.’  If you or someone you know is impacted by this law, feel free to add your comments.
