What is a sex crime?
A sex crime is considered any criminal act that is sexual nature and that violates state and federal sex crime laws.
The majority of sex crimes are committed against the victim’s will. However, sometimes sex crimes are committed even when a victim consents to the activity, such as crimes involving sex with a minor. The minor may consent to sex, but the defendant could still be charged with statutory rape because the victim is under 18 which is the legal age of consent in Arizona.

What to do if you are charged with a sex crime
Prompt action taken on your behalf can have a positive effect on the outcome of your case. Some sex crimes are based upon false accusations, and addressing this matter quickly is vital; your future is at risk without every possible defense option being applied to your case at once.
A full investigation into the accuser’s background may be necessary. Some cases of consensual sex later result in accusations of rape or abuse, and this situation can destroy the accused person’s life and future.
A felony sex crime conviction will result in extensive prison time and spending the rest of your life as a convicted felon and a registered sex offender. Act quickly.
