Don’t struggle, discuss your legal rights with our attorney.

Sexual Battery Cases
Identical Twins Rape a Young Girl
Nathan Avrunin prosecuted 17-year-old male identical twins in a 2003 rape case of an 11-year-old girl. The Coconut Creek twins pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the girl, mostly in her own home. The twin boys were originally held as juvenile delinquents and were looking to be charged with 18 months to two years in a high-risk juvenile residential treatment center for sex offenders. Three weeks later they were charged as adults due to the large amounts of evidence and the nature of the crime. One brother received two counts of sexual battery on a victim under 12 and one count of promoting sexual activity on a victim under 16. The other was charged with one count of sexual battery on a victim under 12 and two counts of promoting sexual activity of a victim under 16.
State vs. Michael Benda
In the State vs. Michael Benda case, Nathan Avrunin, along with now Judge Stacy Ross, prosecuted Michael Benda for sexual battery. Benda forced an eight-year-old, the son of a family friend, to participate in oral sex along with being anally rape. Benda was charged with 12 consecutive life sentences, followed by 75 years in Florida State Prison. He received the maximum allowable sentence under Florida law.
This victory with Mr. Avrunin had such significance to Stacy Ross that she listed it first on her application for the Appointment to the Circuit Court of the 17th Judicial Circuit.
