CASES THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF FLORIDA

Last week another Tampa Bay Buccaneer was arrested.  Former Buc Kellen Winslow was arrested for public lewdness and possession of synthetic marijuana in New Jersey after a woman in a Target parking lot alleged to police that she saw Winslow with his penis out in the car. In Florida, this is often charged as Exposure of a Sexual Organ in violation of Florida Statute 800.03.

It is a crime to expose or exhibit one’s sexual organs in public or on the private premises of another in Florida (or if the suspect can be seen from private premises) in a vulgar or indecent manner, or to be naked in public except in any place provided or set apart for that purpose. A mother’s breastfeeding of her baby does not under any circumstance violate this section.  Exposure of a sexual organ is a first degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one year on jail, 12 months probation, or a combination of both.

Most people charged with this crime are hoping to eventually seal or expunge their arrest record.  In order to be eligible, the defendant would have to have the case dismissed through the filing of a motion, be found not guilty at trial, or receive a withhold of adjudication.  That is why it is important to retain an experienced criminal attorney for this charge.

It appears Kellen Winslow’s defense will be that he allegedly pulled over to a parking lot to smoke what he thought at the time was a legal substance. He allegedly changed his clothes in his vehicle as not to smell like smoke when he returned home. Kellen allegedly is arguing that absolutely nothing inappropriate that took place.  The substance was allegedly synthetic marijuana. Winslow pleaded not guilty to the pot charge and police didn’t charge him with lewdness because she chose not to file charges or come forward to testify against him. If the substance was synthetic marijuana and it is legal in New Jersey to possess this substance, he may end up with all charges dismissed against him.  How good was that defense if the witness did come forward to testify against him?  Allegedly, the police seized two open jars of Vaseline found on the console of his vehicle, and when an investigating officer approached the car, “Winslow sprang to an upright position.”  With that corroborating evidence, it might have been a tougher case to defend, but in the end Winslow may get lucky and end up with all the criminal charges dropped.  If you have been arrested for a sex crime in Polk County, retain an experienced criminal lawyer to defend you in court.

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
