Arrested for a Sex Crime?

If you are facing a charge involving a sex crime in Phoenix, you may already be aware of some of the ramifications of the allegations (such as registering as a sex offender) that exist even before an investigation is complete, and certainly before the case comes to an end.  The fact is that when people read or hear about allegations of sexual offenses, they often conclude the allegations are true without even a hint of knowledge concerning the case.  As a result, the stigma of a charge of sexual misconduct of any kind can affect your relationships with friends, family members, employers, and even total strangers.  In addition, the threat of a conviction carries with it the possibility of lifetime registration as a sex offender, a consequence that can affect every aspect of your future.

Don’t face the allegations of a sex crime alone.  At The Feldman Law Firm, we adhere to the principal that you are innocent until proven guilty, no matter what the charge against you.  When you retain us as your sex crimes lawyer, you will always be treated with the respect you deserve.Adam Feldman, a former prosecutor and experienced criminal defense attorney, has a wealth of experience representing clients charged with a variety of sexual offenses.  His track record in those cases is unparalleled, and includes many not guilty verdicts.  He has the knowledge and background to provide you with the best defense possible when you are facing a sex crime charge.

What Is a Sex Crime in Arizona?

The range of sex crimes enumerated in the Arizona Criminal Code is substantial, both in terms of the nature of the crimes and their penalties.  The following are just some of the many sex crimes under Arizona law:

There are also a number of other offenses which, while not necessarily categorized as sex crimes, may relate in one way or another to sexual conduct, and depending upon the circumstances, may constitute sex crimes.  These include human trafficking, stalking, certain domestic violence offenses, and sexual harassment.In addition to the harsh penalties associated with sex crimes, those convicted face lifetime registration as sex offenders (A.R.S. 13-3821 et seq.), with all the consequences that go with it.  The act applies, and registration is required, for most of the offenses listed above.Finally, many sexual crimes involve children, and most, if the child is under the age of 15, are classified as “dangerous crimes against children” (A.R.S. 13-705).  Sexual crimes included within the definition of dangerous crimes against children include molestation of a child; sexual conduct with a minor; commercial sexual exploitation of a minor; sexual exploitation of a minor; sexual abuse; taking a child for the purpose of prostitution; child prostitution; continuous sexual abuse of a child; sex trafficking; bestiality; luring a minor for sexual exploitation; and aggravated luring a minor for sexual exploitation.  Dangerous crimes against children are further classified as first degree (completed offenses) and second degree (preparatory offenses such as attempt).  In either case, special sentencing rules apply, and involve mandatory minimum prison terms, many of them lengthy.
