AGGRESSIVE, AFFORDABLE ARIZONA LAWYER 24/7 FOR RAPE CHARGES


If you’ve been charged with rape, time is of the essence. You need the knowledgeable guidance of an attorney who understands the law and who is ready to do everything he can to prevent the dire consequences that come from a rape conviction. Think about it. A rape conviction means admitting to being a convicted felon when you complete a job application. It means registering as a sex offender – for the rest of your life. You need help – and you need it now.

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 known 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.

Beating a Rape Charge in Arizona or Surrounding Cities

There are many ways to win a rape case in Arizona, as well as ways to get the charges reduced and penalties minimized. Some of the most common defenses Paul Ramos uses are:

  • Charging that someone motivated to harm you have falsely accused you
  • Arguing that the sex was consensual
  • Positing that you had every reason to believe that the sex was consensual
  • Pointing out the lack of physical evidence
  • Challenging the prosecution because there were no eyewitnesses
  • Arguing that an eyewitness account produced a mistaken identification
