The crime of sexually abusing a child is defined in Fl. Ann. Stat. § 39.01(67) as any amount of penetration of the sexual organs in any way, contact between the genitals, including with the mouth or tongue of another person, as well as intimate touching of the genital parts, or engaging in sexual acts in front of a child. Section 39.201 requires any individual who suspects such abuse to report it to the authorities under penalty of law. Anyone who is accused of abusing a child will then be investigated in order to determine whether there are truly grounds to prosecute. If the individual is taken to trial and is convicted, they could face a felony charge for child molestation and abuse.
