Child Molestation Charges in Arizona

There is considerable stigma relating to sex crimes of all kinds; if you have been criminally charged, you will find that you are fighting an uphill battle to defend yourself. This, however, is never more true than when you are facing a sex-related crime that involves a child.

Accusations of child abuse and child molestation are a main focus of headlines and can lead to a bitter courtroom battle that can, unfortunately, have more to do with bias and opinions that the fact of the case. While you are legally required to be considered innocent until proven guilty, defendants in cases such as this will be fighting the natural bias - which further complicate and already complex case.
