Understanding Sexual Battery
In Arizona, sexual battery (also known as sexual assault) happens when someone intentionally or knowingly engages in oral sexual misconduct and/or sexual intercourse without the other person’s consent. Penalties are harsher if the victim was under 15. This sex crime is a Class 2 felony with a possible sentence of up to 14 years in prison. Those with previous felony sexual assault charges can see up to 21 years in prison. Our skilled sex crimes attorney in Scottsdale understands all sexual assault laws in Arizona and can uphold them in all legal proceedings.
Mandatory Registration on the Arizona Sex Offender Registry
In Arizona, many sex crimes make it mandatory for a defendant to register on the sex offender registry. This database is public, so others can see your charges, where you live, and other personal details. Our sex crimes attorney at The Shah Law Firm PLLC can help you clear your name and your record.
