The answer depends on many factors, but yes it may be able to be used against you. I suggest that you speak with a lawyer as we don't know all the details of your confession or case to properly advise you.

You have two separate issues: 1) a possible sexual harassment case and 2) an eviction. Unless you have a lease on the space, they can ask you to leave anytime with reasonable notice.

Assuming you are referring to "cosmetology" as defined in Florida Statute 477.013 (4), no, it is doubtful. The conduct you describe doesn't appear to be a crime.

Terrence H Thorgaard answered on Aug 3, 2021

Your question doesn't make a lot of sense. What is a "Me Too crime"? What state was it committed in? What state will be prosecuting? What does it have to do with Florida? And what would a personal injury claim have to do with a criminal prosecution?
