Sexual Conduct With a Minor Charges in Arizona

In the state of Arizona, a person can be convicted of A.R.S §13-1405 Sexual Conduct with a Minor if he or she commits sexual conduct with a minor by intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual intercourse or oral sexual contact with any person who is under 18 years of age. This is per A.R.S §13-1405.

It is important to understand that sexual intercourse is a broad term and included anything involving penetration. It depends on the age of the victim as to how a person is charged. If the victim is at least 1 years old and has not reached their 18th birthday, then the charge is considered a class six felony. If the victim is 14 years old or younger, then the charge is considered a class felony and also qualifies as Dangerous Crimes Against Children.

If you have been charged with sexual conduct with a minor, it cannot be stressed enough how important it is that you reach out to a reputable law firm to handle your case. This type of charge is very serious and comes with the possibility of having to spend a significant amount of time behind bars. At the Ryan Garvey Attorneys, our attorneys have a lot of experience in handling cases involving sexual conduct with a minor charges, and we are confident we can approach your case to deliver the best outcome possible.
