Sexual Abuse covers many sex crimes and carries heavy sentences when the abuse is done to a child.
Being accused of sexual abuse in the state of Arizona can lead to felony charges if convicted. Sexual abuse is classified as engaging in sexual contact with anyone age 15 or older without their consent or sexual contact only involving the female breast of a child younger than 15. If you are being accused of sexual contact with a child under the age of 15 please see Child Molestation.
Sexual abuse is a call 5 felony unless the abuse involved a child under the age of 15. In that case, it is a class 3 felony and you are at risk of facing child molestation charges depending on the nature of the case.
