Key Issues in the Defense of Statutory Rape Charges in Arizona
Generally speaking, the willingness of the alleged victim is not a defense to a statutory rape charge. Knowledge of the age of the alleged victim is a key issue. This is a fairly complicated matter of law, because it involves more than just the statements made to you regarding the age of the alleged victim. Depending on the exact circumstances of the case, an experienced attorney may be able to use this factor as the basis for a successful defense of statutory rape charge.
Dwane M. Cates has comprehensive knowledge of the law regarding these issues. We will carefully investigate every aspect of your case, and work to build a strong defense for you.
