Sexual Exploitation of a Minor

Sexual Exploitation of a Minor in Arizona

Arrested for a Sex Crime in Phoenix? Call Us for Help!

Sexual exploitation of a minor is an extremely serious charge. If a person is convicted, they face a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and lifetime listing on the sex offender registry. Often, there are multiple counts charged in the same case, based on the number of images involved, meaning that you could face multiple, consecutive 10-year terms.

Sexual Exploitation of a Minor Defined Under the Law

Under Arizona law, sexual exploitation of a minor occurs when a person knowingly records, films, photographs, develops, or duplicates any type of depiction that shows a minor engaged in sexual conduct. The law also covers the distribution or transmittance of inappropriate depictions. Although each case is different, any charge involving this offense subjects a defendant to serious, long-term penalties, including lengthy terms of imprisonment and sex offender registration.

Our firm will explore all possible defenses in your case, asking questions such as:

  • Was the subject depicted in the photo or video actually a minor?
  • Did he or she claim to be of age and did you have reason to believe that?
  • Do the photos or videos truly meet the definition in the statute?

In addition to defending people accused of sexual exploitation of a minor, we defend clients facing other charges involving minors, including sexual assault of a minor and forcing or persuading a minor to engage in prostitution.
