A man in Lake City, Florida, was arrested last week for two counts of capital sexual battery. Michael McMilliam allegedly discussed touching children under 12 on an online chat. The arrest stemmed from a tip received by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Computer Crime Center.
Sexual Battery in Jacksonville and all of Florida means that there was oral, vaginal, or anal penetration or a touching of the sexual body parts of another without their consent. A child under the age of 18 cannot give consent to someone over the age of 18. If convicted of sexual battery on someone under the age of 12 years-old, there is a mandatory life sentence in Florida.
