Arizona Carries Severe Penalties for Sex Offenses

Arizona has by far some of the harshest and most severe penalties in the nation for sex offenses.  Prison is mandatory for almost all sex offenses and sentences commonly start at 13 to 27 years in prison.  Penalties also include consecutive sentences for multiple victims and/or images with life sentences also possible.  In addition, most sex offenses require an individual to register as a sex offender which can also include community notification.

Sex-related charges should not be taken lightly. Cases such as these require a firm understanding of the law, which is why we always recommend seeking reliable representation, immediately. The sex crimes lawyers at our Phoenix criminal law firm are knowledgeable and experienced in handling these types of cases. We continue to strive for excellence, and support that you can count on.
