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.
