Phoenix Statutory Rape Defense Attorney

Statutory Rape Defense Lawyer in Phoenix

In Arizona, statutory rape is called “sexual conduct with a minor," and the age of consent for the state is 18 years old. If you are 18 years old or more and have sex with an individual under 18, you are breaking the law and can be charged with this offense. As the law considers that no one can legally “consent” until they are 18 years old, it is a type of sexual assault under the law. If the minor is under 15 years old, the felony punishment is 13 – 27 years in prison.

There is no opportunity for reducing the sentence in most cases. Even If the minor is 15 – 17 years old, it is a Class 6 felony with prison time as punishment. The punishments for any of these charges are harsh. When the minor is 12 years old or younger, the punishment is life in prison. The minimum time served in such cases is 35 years in prison, and even then it may be difficult to be released. In fact, Arizona has some of the most extreme laws regarding statutory rape of any state.

Our Client Success Stories

    “ I ended up spending twice as much for bumbling incompetence. I received more good advice FREE from Randall than the bum I paid. If I need a Lawyer again in AZ, it will be Randall.”
    I screwed up bad by not getting this lawyer. He gave me a flat rate which I thought was a little high for what seemed like a slam dunk case. I stupidly went for another lawyer's sales pitch who promised to go after corrupt cops (he didn't). I ended up spending twice as much for bumbling incompetence. I received more good advice FREE from Randall than the bum I paid. If I need a Lawyer again in AZ, it will be Randall.

    “Randy can get anything done that he puts his heart to! He has a nice smile, honest and is very supportive, a rare find in a lawyer! I wish the best to you Randy & hope to see you have a huge law firm in the future, you deserve it!”
    This man has a "Heart of Gold" he was very honest and kind. He did everything he told me he would, the only BAD thing I can say is his investigator Judd Slivka is the worst, did not do his job right and did not call me as promised by Randy. If Randy was to get a "real" investigator he would really do much better. Randy is the best I have ever seen yet! As for phone calls he was there for me 8 out of 10 times, he was at all of our appointments, he is very professional and I would recommend him to anyone! Randy can get anything done that he puts his heart to! He has a nice smile, honest and is very supportive, a rare find in a lawyer! I wish the best to you Randy & hope to see you have a huge law firm in the future, you deserve it!
