Arizona takes sex crimes seriously. You must also take it seriously if you face an investigation for a sex crime or a sex crime charge. Simply being charged with a sex crime can stain your reputation, and a conviction can have drastic consequences. If you receive a conviction for a sex crime, you could face months or years in prison, not to mention the negative effects on your reputation and personal relationships.
If you face allegations related to a sex crime, you should not rely on your wits to get you out of this situation.

If you want to fight back against allegations of sex crimes, you should build a strong defense. Our attorney can work with you to craft an aggressive legal strategy to preserve your freedom and reputation.
We may consider these defenses:
Flawed testimony of a child: Adults can easily persuade children. If the sex charges you face involve a child, we could argue that another adult unduly influenced them to create a story. We could also demonstrate that the child exaggerated or lied.
Arizona has criminalized various acts ranging from public exposure to sexual assault. Below, you’ll find information about sex crime charges and the legal consequences anyone could face for a conviction.
Under state law, a person commits indecent exposure if they expose their genitals or anus, or a woman’s areola or nipple of her breast, in the presence of another person. They must also show reckless inconsideration about whether the other person would reasonably be offended by this exposure. Breastfeeding mothers receive specific protections from charges of indecent exposure.
The charges for indecent exposure vary based on the age of the person who saw the exposed breasts or genitals and whether the defendant has any prior convictions.
Arizona law defines public sexual indecency as intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual contact, oral sexual contact, sexual intercourse, or bestiality in the presence of another person. They must also show reckless inconsideration for whether that person would be reasonably offended or alarmed.
The charges for public sexual indecency depend on the age of the person exposed to the act and whether the defendant has any prior convictions.
Under Arizona law, engaging in sexual contact with a person aged 15 or more without their consent (or any sexual contact involving only the female breast of a person under age 15) constitutes sexual abuse. If the defendant holds a position of trust, he or she cannot use the consent of a person aged 15, 16, or 17 as a defense.
Sexual abuse charges depend on the age of the victim.
Arizona law defines sexual conduct with a minor as intentionally or knowingly engaging in sexual intercourse or oral sexual intercourse with someone under 18.
Therefore, the penalty depends on the age of the minor.
Under state law, people commit sexual assault when they engage in sexual intercourse or oral sexual contact with someone else without their consent.
It results in a Class 2 felony, and the penalties depend on the offender’s history of prior convictions, whether they inflicted serious physical injury, and whether they administered drugs to the victim.
Arizona defines child molestation as intentionally engaging in sexual contact or causing a person to engage in sexual contact, other than with the female breast, of a child under age 15. It is a Class 2 felony and a dangerous crime against children. First-time offenders face prison sentences of 10 to 24 years. Offenders with a prior felony conviction face 21 to 35 years in prison.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety maintains a registry of sex offenders available to the public on its website. By law, the department must maintain this registry and update it annually.
It includes the offender’s:
If you face a sex crime conviction, you could spend the rest of your life on this registry. Your peers, neighbors, potential employers, potential landlords, and anyone else you meet will have access to your personal information. As a result, you may struggle to find a good job or a nice place to live, and people may judge you without even getting to know you. Our defense lawyer can fight to keep you off this registry.

Omer and his team of experienced Lawyers were able to help me during one of my toughest points in life. I could not be more thankful for the level of care as well as the efforts they made to make me comfortable throughout the entire process. Thank you so much team!
Fantastic attorney. Omer was communicative, kind and made me feel completely confident going into a very scary time. The outcome was so stellar that I hadn’t even thought it possible prior to my trial. I highly recommend and am eternally grateful!
I asked around for referrals for a criminal defense lawyer in the Biltmore area and Omer Gurion’s name came up often. Very responsive, reassuring, and confident. I’m so glad I called, a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Thanks Omer!
There legal team was extremely accommodating and professional. They took care of everything from A-Z without any effort or concern on my part. They got my case thrown out and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing assistance with their legal problems. Thanks Gurion Legal!!!
Working with Omer was a pleasure during a very difficult, emotional and stressful time. He takes the time to listen and lets you know what to expect. He is professional, aggressive, has a sense of humor and gets results. Your hard work and dedication are appreciated Omer…Thank you!
My experience with hiring Omer as my attorney has been nothing short of great. Communication with Omer, Ashley and Lisa is always easy with quick responses. Based on my case Omer was able to pull off a miracle for me. Working with Gurion Legal took a lot of stress off me. They were able to get me the most favorable outcome for my situation and I’m beyond thankful for that. I know exactly who I’d go back to if needed or who I would definitely recommend to any family or friends in need of a lawyer.
Mr. Gurion did an amazing job representing me. He got the best possible outcome for my case.
Omer is a fantastic attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing attorney.
I endorse the 5 stars they receive – they earn them. They’ve been hardworking and knowledgeable, and I should know, I’ve hired them twice! Dealing with legal matters is really difficult, confusing, and stressful, and they ease that burden when you want to count on and trust somebody. I fired my first defense attorney, who wasn’t working much at all to help me, and luckily found Omer and his colleagues. My outcomes were both times much better than I ever expected. If you’re reading reviews looking for legal help, call them.
My experience with Gurion Legal was amazing!
Lisa was so helpful, communicative and positive.
