Child Molestation Lawyers in Phoenix

Are you facing child molestation charges in Arizona?

Arizona comes down hard on people accused of sexual offenses, especially when it comes to crimes against children. If you were accused of molesting a child, we urge you to contact a Phoenix child molestation defense attorney from MayesTelles PLLC. We understand that many innocent people are accused of child molestation, but we also understand the grave consequences of a wrongful conviction.

With a former prosecutor from the Maricopa County Prosecutor's Office on our team who has prosecuted thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases, you can be rest assured that we know how best to defend you against any type of sex-related offense.

Molestation of a Child

Under A.R.S. § 13-1410, molestation of a child, a person is guilty of child molestation when he or she intentionally or knowingly engages in or causes a person to engage in sexual contact, except sexual contact with the female breast, with a boy or girl who is under the age of fifteen.

Molestation of a child is a Class 2 felony offense in Arizona, punishable pursuant to Section 13-705, Dangerous crimes against children. Under Section 13-705, anyone convicted of molestation of a child faces 10, 17, or 24 years in prison.

Sex Offender Registration for ARS 13-1410 Violations in Arizona

Every state has different sex offender registration requirements. In Arizona, offenders are evaluated with the standardized Arizona Risk Assessment. This test considered 19 different criteria to determine the offender’s likelihood of recidivism. Anyone convicted of an ARS 13-1410 violation in Arizona is required to register as a sex offender per ARS 13-3821.

Child molestation charges carry heavy consequences in Arizona, and we cannot stress this enough. Unfortunately, it is common for divorcing parents to accuse the other parent falsely of child molestation during a heated child custody battle. Sometimes, an angry of jealous parent will coach their children to accuse the other parent of molesting them, and preteens and teenagers have even pointed the finger to innocent fathers cause harm deliberately.

If you have been accused of molesting a child, it is critical that you engage an aggressive defense attorney from MayesTelles PLLC. With thousands of cases under our belts, we know how to investigate the facts of your case, and we know exactly what types of defenses can be used in court; for example, the alleged victim may be accusing you of something you did not do out of jealousy or spite.

In the face of sex offender registration, imprisonment, and the possible loss of child custody, you should not hesitate to contact our office today. Call (602) 428-7104.
