Penalties for Sexual Assault & Rape in Arizona

Sexual assault is a serious crime that comes with the potential for years behind bars. Also known as rape, this type of sex crime occurs when someone knowingly or intentionally engages in sexual contact with another person without their consent. Fighting this felony offense can seem like a daunting task, but having the right attorney at your side will put you in a strong position to fight for the best legal outcome possible.

Penalties for all felony offenses are serious, but sex offenses are punished with particular severity. Anyone who is convicted of rape could face the following penalties, in addition to sex offender registration.

  • First offense: carries a minimum 5.25-year term of imprisonment and a maximum of 14 years
  • One prior felony: carries a minimum of 7 and a maximum of 21 years in prison
  • 2+ prior felonies: carries a minimum of 14 years and a maximum of 28 years in prison

If the sexual assault involved the intentional use of drugs like ketamine hydrochloride or flunitrazepam without the victim's knowledge, the term of imprisonment could be increased by three years.
