AGGRESSIVE, AFFORDABLE ARIZONA LAWYER 24/7 FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT AND BATTERY CHARGES


If you or a loved one has been arrested on sexual assault and battery charges, every minute counts. Sex crimes carry an enormous stigma, and a conviction can impact every minute of the rest of your life. In addition to lengthy prison sentences, a sexual assault conviction can require inclusion in the Arizona Sex Offender Registry. If that happens, your name will be available online, neighbors can be notified, and you’ll be subjected to the kind of scrutiny and judgment no one wants. You need the help of an expert – the sooner, the better.

Types of Arizona Sexual Assault and Battery Charges

In Arizona, sexual assault and battery involve 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 sexual assault and battery charges can be filed if a “date rape” drug was involved or if the accused is charged with causing serious physical injury.

In Arizona, sexual assault 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 Sexual Assault and Battery Charge in Arizona or Surrounding Cities

There are many ways to win a sexual assault and battery 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
