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
