Chandler Sexual Conduct With a Minor Lawyer

In Arizona, under A.R.S §13-1405, a person commits the crime of sexual conduct with a minor by intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual intercourse or oral sexual contact with any person who is under eighteen years of age. The age of the minor will also be a factor. If the conduct was with a minor under the age of 15-years old, it is a class 2 felony. Whereas sexual conduct with a minor who is at least fifteen years of age is a class 6 felony.

Unlike Child Molestation, which involves the touching, fondling, or manipulating of the genitals or anus. Sexual conduct with a minor involves sexual intercourse or any manner of penetration with a minor. In addition, if the victim was under the age of 15 at the time of the offense, it will also qualify as Dangerous Crimes Against Children.

It should also be noted that many sex offenses have no statute of limitation at all. This is very different from many other serious felony offenses which generally have statutes of limitation of seven years. As such, a person could be charged with a serious sex offense regardless of how much time has passed since the alleged incident.

Sexual conduct with a minor is a very serious offense. In fact, it’s one of the most serious crimes someone can be charged with in Arizona. If you are convicted of the crime of sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 15, the minimum prison term is 13 years, and the maximum prison term is 27 years, with the presumptive prison term being 20 years. In Arizona, there is no early release for people convicted of this crime, which means you will serve 100% of your time. In Addition, the term of imprisonment must be served consecutively to any other sentence for any other offense committed at any time.

Even after you are released, you will be required to register as a sex offender per ARS 13-3821 and may be subject to other conditions. This will inhibit your ability to find employment, rent a home or apartment, go to school, and many other areas where a background check is required.

I am a client of the Attorney's For Freedom Law Firm's "Attorney On Retainer" program (as well as... their "Self-Protection plan"). I had an unfortunate explosion involving a firearm ("accidental discharge") that was a possible felony charge in Arizona. One call to Jonathan and it was all taken care of with no further action required on my part. They truly "just a phone call away"...read more
