Florida Statutes Title XLVI. Crimes § 796.001. Offenses by adults involving minors;  intent

It is the intent of the Legislature that adults who involve minors in any behavior prohibited under this chapter be prosecuted under other laws of this state, such as, but not limited to, s. 787.06 , chapter 794, chapter 800, s. 810.145 , chapter 827, and chapter 847.  The Legislature finds that prosecution of such adults under this chapter is inappropriate since a minor is unable to consent to such behavior.
