Tempe Sexual Abuse Defense Lawyer
A person can be charged with sexual abuse by if they are accused of intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual contact with any person who is fifteen or more years of age without consent of that person or with any person who is under fifteen years of age if the sexual contact involves only the female breast.
Consequences of Sex Abuse Accusations:
Sexual abuse can result in jail or prison, lifetime sex offender probation and sex offender registration upon conviction. If the alleged victim is under 15 years old, the penalties are even more extreme. Sexual abuse in Arizona can include any kind of inappropriate touching of another person, and the charge can be based solely on a mere accusation. This creates a serious problem for the individual charged with the crime, as it can be based strictly on the testimony of the person claiming to be a victim of the abuse. If you are facing a sexual abuse charge, you must contact an attorney immediately. Attorney Raymond Kimble has successfully represented many individuals throughout Arizona over the last twenty years who have been charged with sexual abuse.
