Types of Arizona Rape Charges

In Arizona, rape is a form of sexual assault and involves intercourse or oral sexual contact without consent. A lack of consent is charged when the person was impaired because of drugs, alcohol, developmental disability, psychological disorder and the impairment should have been know by the accused. Consent also comes into play if the person is deceived regarding the nature of the sexual act or is deceived into thinking that the accused is the person’s spouse. Aggravated rape charges can be filed if a “date rape” drug was involved or if the accused is charged with causing serious physical injury.

In Arizona, rape is a class 2 felony, carrying a penalty of up to 14 years in prison. Aggravated circumstances can add three more years. A second conviction can add up to seven years in prison, and a third conviction can lead to doubling the 14-year sentence.
