Arizona law defines child molestation as when a person knowingly and intentionally engages in or causes another to participate in sexual contact with a child under fifteen. Sexual contact and sexual intercourse refer to two different things, however. Sexual contact means any direct or indirect touching, fondling, or manipulating of any part of the genitals or anus. This could also include using an object to engage in this contact.
Child molestation can lead to a class 2 felony conviction.
Arizona law states that people who commit this crime could face 24 years for a first-time conviction and up to 35 years in prison after a second or subsequent conviction.
Other punishments could include:
To avoid facing these consequences, you may want to have a defense attorney stand by your side. At our firm, we can get to work on your case immediately so you feel supported throughout.
When you work with the team at Gurion Legal, we can develop a strong defense against your charges. We could use several potential defenses to defend you. Of course, we could tailor each defensive strategy based on your case’s evidence and other factors.
Potential defenses we could use to defend you could include:
When we review the evidence, we can determine if one or more of these defensive strategies could work for you.
Sometimes, people get accused of crimes even though no sexual contact occurred.
Reasons for this situation could include:
The law understands that accidents happen. If you’re in a similar situation, our attorneys can obtain the evidence needed to prove you did not sexually touch a child.
Misunderstandings and false accusations of child molestation could ruin someone’s life. Unfortunately, these false accusations happen more commonly than some might think. Someone may also falsely accuse another person of a crime they didn’t commit, especially if they have ulterior motives for doing so.
Common reasons why false accusations of child molestation happen include:
While it’s important to listen to children when they make child molestation accusations, it’s also important to review the evidence. Our child molestation attorneys in Phoenix can ensure we build a solid defense if someone falsely accuses you.
Having a criminal conviction on your record not only puts you at risk of serving jail time, probation, community service, or fines, but you could also face personal consequences. These consequences could affect you for the rest of your life.
Examples of long-term consequences of a criminal conviction include:
Having to register on the sex offender registry can make your life very complicated. If you move to a new area, your neighbors could find out and not want to form relationships with you. This could severely affect your relationships with others.
If someone accuses you of molesting a child, you must understand your legal options. Just because you get accused of a crime doesn’t mean your life is over. However, you must remember that anything you say can and will get used against you in a court of law.
While pleading your case to interrogators might seem the right thing to do, it isn’t. Even if you don’t realize it, you could say something they could use against you later. Therefore, a more beneficial step you can take involves contacting a Phoenix child molestation lawyer at Gurion Legal.
When facing charges that could affect your future, you may want to hire an attorney to protect your freedom.

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.

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.
