Molestation

Child Molestation Laws in Arizona:

Child sexual abuse charges are extremely serious and aggressively prosecuted in Arizona. If you were charged with child molestation or any other child abuse offense, you are advised to obtain the legal services of an experienced Phoenix and Mesa child molestation attorney. Attorney Jeremy Geigle defends his clients with great focus and dedication.

Molestation of a Child, ARS 13-1410:

  • “A person commits molestation of a child by intentionally or knowingly engaging in or causing a person to engage in sexual contact, except sexual contact with the female breast, with a child under fifteen years of age.”

Child molestation charges may result from the direct or indirect sexual touching or contact of a child under the age of 15. The offense may apply if the child touches the adult or if the adult touches the child.

Child Molestation Penalties in Arizona:

  • Minimum: 10 years prison
  • Maximum: 24 years prison
  • Class 2 felony
  • Note: no “gain” time; sentences are day-to-day
  • Lifetime sexual offender registration requirement
  • Permanent criminal record

Great stigma is attached to child abuse charges of any kind. Even the mere accusation of child molestation charges will affect the way that others look at the accused.  Our criminal justice system is based upon the principle of “innocent until proven guilty,” but in highly charged child molestation cases people tend to rush to judgment and assume the worst – even before hearing the facts of the case. Phoenix sex offense attorney Jeremy Geigle understands the innate fears that can affect people and he utilizes this knowledge to his client’s benefit in a most skillful manner in both pretrial and courtroom proceedings. Attorney Geigle’s calmness and straightforward manner affects people in a positive manner. A successful sex offense attorney must be able to relate to people in this way for effective representation.
