Arizona attorney defending the accused against sexual related charges in both state and federal court

Sex-related charges often result in either Arizona state felony charges, Federal criminal charges, or both. A conviction means time in prison, financial penalties, and having to register as a sex offender for the rest of one’s life. Typical charges include:

These types of charges will often hinge on a few particular issues. First, the testimony of the complaining party is crucial as such charges are sometimes fabricated for a variety of reasons. Second, such matters often rely on physical evidence obtained by the police. If such evidence was collected in violation of the Fourth Amendment then it may be possible to prevent it from being used in Court. Having an attorney who understands these types of issues, and who is versed in trial law, can make the difference in one’s defense.

Arizona attorney Bretton Barber aggressively protects the rights of the accused in such matters. Bretton will immediately obtain copies of all witness statements and will examine any physical evidence related to the case.
