Prescott Sex Crimes Attorneys

Defending Clients Accused Of Sex Crimes in Prescott, Gilbert, Maricopa County, & Yavapai County

Being accused of a sex crime is an extremely serious matter. Sex crime allegations carry with them a stigma that is not attached to other crimes. These are crimes that the public, law enforcement, and the courts find particularly objectionable and egregious, even more so if they involve minors, the disabled, the helpless, or the elderly. A sex crime accusation can be devastating to your reputation, your family, and to your freedom and future. Often you will face public censure before the true facts have even been brought to light, and you may be “convicted” in the court of public opinion long before you have your day in court.

Sex Crimes in Arizona

Sex crimes in Arizona can run the gamut from a misdemeanor charge of indecent exposure to a Class 2 felony charge of sexual assault. The penalties stemming from a sex crime conviction can range from probation and fines to long prison sentences, along with mandatory sex offender registration. 

Examples of Arizona sex crimes can include:

  • Possession/distribution of child pornography
  • Child luring
  • Child molestation
  • Sexual abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Statutory rape
  • Indecent exposure
  • Public sexual indecency
  • Prostitution
  • Sexual extortion (coercion or threats used to gain a sexual benefit)
  • Revenge porn
  • Failure to register as a sex offender
  • Voyeurism
  • Surreptitious recording

 These crimes are all defined under various Arizona laws that lay out how they are charged and the penalties involved. Examples of penalties include five to 14 years in prison for sexual assault/rape, 10 to 24 years in prison for child pornography, and 13 years to life for sexual conduct with a minor. 

What is the Age Of Consent in Arizona?

In the state of Arizona, the age of consent is 18 years old. Meaning that individuals who are under the age of 18 may not legally consent to sexual activity, regardless of how old their partner is. Under Arizona law, sexual activity with a minor who is under the age of 18 is deemed statutory rape.

Arizona Sex Offender Registration

One of the most severe penalties stemming from certain sex crime convictions involves mandatory sex offender registration. This registration can put your identity and the crime for which you were convicted on the internet for the public to see. Sex offender registration generally requires annual updates on your part to law enforcement. 

Registration is based on your level of risk. Level 1 offenders have their information given to law enforcement. Level 2 offenders’ information is given to community organizations that involve children, while Level 3 offenders’ information is given to all of the previous agencies as well as neighbors and anyone who visits online.
