Sex crime penalties in Arizona are some of the toughest in the country. The most serious sex crimes carry major life-altering penalties, while even the most minor sex crimes have the ability to dramatically affect an accused person’s life forever. First offense convictions can often land you in prison. In addition, with a conviction, sex offenders can receive auxiliary penalties such as required registration as a sex offender. Repeat offenses and crimes involving young children can even result in life in prison in some situations.
