Phoenix Child Molestation Lawyers

Suzuki Law Offices Can Fight Your Sex Crime Charges

If a law enforcement officer or detective approaches you concerning your possible sexual involvement with a minor, you should exercise your right to remain silent and contact a Phoenix sex crime attorney at Suzuki Law Offices as soon as possible. You may be under investigation for a "dangerous crime against children," such as child molestation, sexual assault, or sexual misconduct with a minor. Anything you say can be used against you, even a seemingly innocent statement.

When you hire Suzuki Law Offices, we will organize a comprehensive criminal defense designed to obtain a positive outcome for you. Working with our private investigator, we will thoroughly review the circumstances of your case. Defenses such as lack of knowledge of the person's age or untruthfulness on the part of the alleged victim could result in a dismissal of the charge or other satisfactory outcome. Our criminal defense lawyers will defend you every step of the way.

Arizona's Child Molestation Laws (§ 13-1410)

According to Arizona Revised Statute § 13-1410, child molestation is a crime that involves intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual contact with a child under the age of 15. Child molestation is a Class 2 felony that can carry serious punishments of up to 35years in prison.

The law also states that sexual contact can refer to touching, fondling, or any contact with genitals. If sexual intercourse or oral sex occurs between a minor under the age of 15 and an adult, the charges would be elevated to “sexual conduct with a minor”—which carries even harsher penalties under Arizona law.

The Penalties for Child Molestation in Arizona

In addition to the penalties listed below, you will be listed on the sex offender registry and placed on lifetime sex offender probation, which is intense and often times results in failure. Prosecutors do not hesitate to demand the harshest penalties in these cases. Your best option is to obtain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney in Phoenix.

In Arizona, the penalties for child molestation are severe and mandatory:

  • If the victim was under 12 years of age, you will go to prison for 35 years if convicted
  • If the victim was between 12 and 14, you will go to prison for 10 to 24 years if convicted
  • If the victim was between 15 and 17, you could go to prison (no mandatory sentence)
