Fighting Sexual Assault Charges

Determining whether the accuser freely gave his or her consent to sexual activity is typically the key issue in a sexual assault case involving adults. All sexual assault cases have severe penalties, but because children under age 15 cannot legally consent to any sexual activity, these cases are especially serious. Sexual abuse and assault convictions will require you to register as a sex offender and can result in a prison sentence and/or lifetime sex offender probation.

In Arizona, sexual abuse is the act of intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual contact with any person who is 15 years of age or older without his or her consent.

Sexual assault is the act of intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual intercourse or oral sexual contact with any person without his or her consent. When the case involves adults, it is a class 2 felony, and the offender may not be eligible for suspension of sentence or probation. The prison term for a first offense typically ranges from 5.25 years to 14 years.

If the victim is under 15 years of age, sexual assault is punishable under the dangerous crimes against children statute. The penalties are extremely harsh for these crimes and adds years to any prison sentence. Please speak with me to learn how the law may apply to your case.
