Child Pornography Protecting Our Clients' Rights

Phoenix Lawyer for Child Pornography & Sexual Exploitation of a Minor 

Charges for Sexual Exploitation of a Minor in Arizona

In the state of Arizona, if you are convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor, then you will have a class two felony on your record. This law in Arizona can be found per A.R.S §13-3553.

It is important to understand that this statute is extremely broad. In fact, anyone who knowingly records, films, photographs, duplicates, develops, sells, purchases, transports, or electronically transmits or receives any visual depiction of a sexual conduct with a minor or exploitive exhibition can be charged and possibly convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Because the statute is so broad, there is a strong likelihood that someone could be charged with it even if they are innocent. Simply clicking on the wrong link on the Internet can lead to be charged and convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor. This is why it is so important to contact an experienced attorney to handle your case if you have been charged with this offense.

If you have been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, please contact the Ryan Garvey Attorneys today. This type of charge is very serious and can lead to an extended amount of time behind bars. By having a reputable and experienced attorney on your side, you can have peace of mind in knowing your case is being handled in the most effective and professional manner possible.

Punishment For Child Pornography And Sexual Exploitation Of A Minor

The severity of punishment that comes along with child pornography and sexual exploitation of a minor charges is greatly dependent on the age of the victims. If the victims are under the age of fourteen, then the charges will also qualify as Dangerous Crimes Against Children, which comes with severe possible penalties.

For a first offense, the minimum sentence for each conviction will be:

  • 10 years in prison
  • 17 years presumptive in prison
  • 24 years maximum incarceration

If you have already been convicted of certain serious felonies, including those that qualify as a Dangerous Crimes Against Children, then the minimum possible punishments include:

  • 21 years in prison
  • 28 years presumptive in prison
  • 35 years maximum incarceration

It is very important that you understand that crimes that are qualified as Dangerous Crimes Against Children require an offender to serve 100% of their prison sentence before they are considered for release. More so, if you have two convictions, your punishment must be carried out consecutively. This means there is no chance for your sentences to be carried out concurrently (simultaneously). Because the punishment for sexual exploitation of a minor and child pornography are so extensive, many people refer to them as “life-enders.”

In the state of Arizona, if you are convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor and you are handed the maximum penalty, this means you will serve more time than a person would receive for the maximum penalty of being convicted of Second Degree Murder.
