Lewd and lascivious conduct on a minor between the age of 12 and 15 without any prior violations is a second degree felony in Florida and may be punished by up to 15 years in prison. Given that your husband has not been in trouble with the law before, the sentence should hopefully be more lenient. Also, your husband will be able to obtain good time credit while in prison and should be eligible for parole before the completion of his sentence. I hope this helps; I wish I had better news for you.
