Arizona has tough sex crimes laws. Even what may seem like a minor offense can have serious consequences. Very often a conviction for a first offense can land you in prison. Importantly, many sex offenses carry increased penalties and a conviction can require registration as a sex offender. If convicted of a sex offense involving a minor under the age of 15, you could be facing life in prison. Generally, the investigation of a sex crime begins with an allegation from a former lover or family member. Often times these allegations are simply exaggerated or fabricated. There are several defenses that can be explored when charged with a sex crime. For example, the credibility and reliability of the accusing party can be a critical issue in the case and our sex crimes attorneys know how to challenge the veracity of the accusations. In each case we put the government to the test of proving your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In doing so we assert every defense available to get you the best result possible.
