Sex Offenses

Sex crimes and child pornography charges are unique for many reasons.  In many cases, there are few, if any, eye witnesses.  Punishments for the most serious sex crimes are so severe that they amount to life in prison.

The most serious sex crimes include:

  • Sexual assault (rape) in Arizona;
  • Sexual conduct with a minor;
  • Sexual molestation of a child;
  • Continuous sexual abuse of a child;
  • Child pornography (possession, distribution, production);
  • Unlawful sexual conduct;
  • Sexual abuse;
  • Indecent exposure; and
  • Public sexual indecency.

Sex offenses against children will implicate a sentencing scheme called “dangerous crimes against children” or DCAC. These types of crimes, involving child victims, can lead to the most severe prison sentences that exist under Arizona law. DCAC offenses also attract the attention of aggressive prosecutors who fight for long prison terms.

Sex Offender Registration

Sex offender registration, for those who successfully avoid a lengthy prison term, is an utterly demoralizing and debilitating life punishment: public humiliation; strict restrictions on where you can live; nearly impossible to find employment; personal and physical attacks; complicated registration rules and processes; regular visitations with law enforcement; and constant fear.

If you are charged with any sex-related offense, you need a team of lawyers who will utilize every defense option available to protect you and your freedom.  Top trial attorney Bruce S. Griffen, along with former felony prosecutor Ryan J. Stevens, will utilize their significant sex offense experience and trial skills to launch a powerful defense to your sex or child pornography charges.
