About Sexual Abuse Charges

Phoenix Sexual Abuse Defense Attorney

Charged with a Sex Offense? Get Experienced Criminal Defense!

Sexual abuse is an extremely serious charge that can result in years spent in jail or prison if the accused is convicted of the crime. When sexual contact of any kind is made on another person against their consent, the crime is termed "sexual abuse". If the alleged victim is under 15 years old, the penalties are even more extreme. This can include any kind of inappropriate touching of another person, and the charge can be based on any accusation made by the other person of such abuse. This creates a serious problem for the individual charged with the crime, as it can be based strictly on the testimony of the person claiming to be a victim of the abuse. It is critical that you protect yourself in such a case and contact a Phoenix criminal defense attorney the moment you are arrested. As this is a Class 5 Felony charge, the consequences of a conviction are extreme.
