Sex Crimes in Arizona
Sex offenses are some of the most difficult cases to deal with as a defendant and as a defense lawyer. This is an area of criminal law where it is common to see large disparities between the strength of the government’s evidence, which is often based solely on a victim’s statement, and the massive penalties required by law if convicted. Sex crimes in Arizona, particularly, can result in very long prison sentences.
Why You Need A Sex Crimes Lawyer
False allegations can happen under various circumstances. They can be motivated by divorce, child custody issues, anger, and revenge. The allegation of committing a sex offense can have a tremendous, negative impact on your life. It may be difficult to recover from the damage such an allegation can do to your reputation, but being convicted of a sex crime is far worse. Many sex crimes in Arizona are alleged to be dangerous crimes against children, resulting in lengthy mandatory prison sentences. Other sex offenses, like possession of child pornography (even when it is just a case of having illegal images on your computer or cell phone rather than actually producing the images), can have even more severe consequences. Convictions often require lifetime probation and sex offender registration after release from prison. Defending yourself against an allegation of any kind of sexual misconduct is like navigating a minefield. One misstep can ruin your life. These kinds of charges require an experienced sex crimes lawyer.
