Arizona Sex Crimes Lawyers
Providing Sound Legal Counsel in Tempe and the Surrounding Areas
A sex crime allegation and conviction carries consequences that few other offenses do. Like other crimes, if a person is found guilty of a sex offense, they can be incarcerated and/or fined. However, unlike other offenses, the individual may also be required to register as a sex offender. Depending on the person's risk level, their personal information, including their address and photo, is disseminated to members of the community in which they live. Public access to such information can adversely impact relationships with others and can lead to hostile treatment. One of the most effective ways to avoid such a consequence, and other criminal penalties, is to aggressively fight the sex crime charge. If you've been accused of an offense, you need the services of a lawyer who is ready to zealously advocate on your behalf.

Experienced and Effective Sex Crimes Defense
The term "sex crimes" refers to a variety of offenses involving sexual conduct. Such acts range from engaging in unwanted sexual contact with another person to having sexually explicit conversations with minors. Regardless of the type of offense, a conviction can potentially ruin your life for years. You can be sure that the State will do everything in its legal power to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt and seek maximum punishment for the crime.
At Oliverson & Huss Law PLLC, we know how hard the prosecution works to obtain a conviction. With this understanding, we can focus our resources on building a defense to challenge the other side's case and cast doubt on the evidence presented. We are intelligent, strategic, and aggressive and will work relentlessly to protect your rights, freedom, and reputation.
Our Arizona sex crimes lawyers deliver hard-hitting defense for various offenses, including:
- Sexual assault/rape: Knowingly having sex with another person without their permission is a class 2 felony, punishable by up to 14 years in prison.
- Child pornography: Making, possessing, distributing, or duplicating visual materials depicting a minor engaged in a sexual act is also a class 2 felony. A conviction can result in a prison sentence of up to 12.5 years. However, if the offense was committed against a minor under 15 years of age, it's considered a dangerous crime against a child, and the maximum term of imprisonment increases substantially.
- Internet sex crimes: Generally, internet sex crimes involve sexually explicit interactions with minors that occur online. The level of charge and punishments depend on the nature of the offense.
