If you’ve been charged with felony theft, you need the help of a seasoned attorney – and you need that help now. In Arizona, Felony Theft is a serious crime and one that will stay on your record for a lifetime. A conviction has severe financial implications, not only because you will hard time ever getting another job, but also because you may be liable for significant fines and restitution.
In Arizona, Felony Theft charges can be brought when the value of the stolen property is more than $1,000, if a firearm was taken, or if an animal was taken for the purpose of animal fighting. Felony Theft can be categorized as a class 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 felony, depending on the value of the property alleged to have been taken. At the upper end is property valued at more than $25,000. If convicted of that class 2 felony, you could face up to 12-1/2 years in prison. That can bounce up to 35 years in prison if you’ve had two prior convictions. At the lower end of the spectrum, property or services with a value between $1,000 and $2,000 can bring up to two years in prison – or 5.75 years with two prior offenses.

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.
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.
