Statutory Rape

Phoenix Statutory Rape Defense Attorney

Statutory Rape Defense Lawyer in Phoenix

In Arizona, statutory rape is called “sexual conduct with a minor”, and the age of consent for the state is 18 years old.  If you are 18 years old or more and have sex with an individual under 18, you are breaking the law and can be charged with this offense.  As the law considers that no one can legally “consent” until they are 18 years old, it is a type of sexual assault under the law.   If the minor is under 15 years old, the felony punishment is 13 – 27 years in prison.
