Sex Crimes

Being falsely accused of a sex crime is perhaps the worse thing that could ever happen to a person. A person accused of such an offense in Arizona will find that many of those around him will rush to judgement and simply believe the allegations are true. Beyond the damage to your reputation, the penalties for an Arizona Sex Crime Conviction are some of the harshest in the United States. Under Arizona law, there are lengthy mandatory prison sentences for many of these crimes. Consequently, prosecutors will often use this leverage to attempt to get a person to plead guilty with prison disposition. Unfortunately, many prosecutors fail to acknowledge the reality that people make false sex crimes allegations. There are countless documented cases of people being false accused of these crimes. Furthermore, there are also many cases where a person has violated that law, but the prosecution has severely overcharged the case. This makes a case where someone should be facing probation, into a case where the person is now facing prison. Because of the issues stated above, these allegations need to be treated differently than other criminal cases. They require more work, more skill and more experience to fight. When we challenge these allegation, it is common for the firm to use former sex crimes detectives, former sex crimes prosecutors and other experts in the field to build a defense. Some of the cases and situations that we utilizes these resources are:
