Vlad Gagic, Arizona Statutory Rape Lawyer
Arizona does not technically have a statute that distinguishes between statutory rape and sexual assault. Often, statutory rape is believed to be rape by someone other than a stranger: rape by a family friend or acquaintance, date rape, rape by a teacher, minister, trusted authority, or spousal rape. Arizona does not make these distinctions. Instead, sexual assault, dangerous crimes against children, sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation of a minor, or other allegations may result if the alleged victim was legally unable to consent to sexual behavior. In Arizona sex crimes cases, no one under 18 is able to consent according to the law except in rare circumstances. In Arizona, many rape laws are designed to protect minors. But sometimes the victim is the accused and Arizona law is enforced unfairly.
The Arizona sex crimes statutes are extremely complex. If you have been charged with any sex crime in Tucson, contact a defense attorney with years of experience with what is commonly known as statutory rape.
