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.

How Long Do Child Molesters Go to Jail for in Arizona?

Child molestation is a serious crime in Arizona, and the penalties for offenders can be severe. The specific sentence for child molestation will depend on the particular facts of the case, including the age of the victim, the severity of the offense, and the offender's criminal history. However, in general, child molestation is a Class 2 felony in Arizona, which carries a maximum sentence of 35 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.
