REDUCED | 5 COUNTS of SEXUAL CONDUCT with a MINOR (DCAC) 3 COUNTS of CHILD MOLESTATION REDUCED to ATTEMPT with PROBATION and 1 YEAR in JAIL – State v. Mr. C. (DMC No. 9515) (Maricopa County Superior Court CR2009-140682): Mr. C. was 19 years old when he began having a sexual relationship with a 12 year old younger sister of a girl he used to date. He was addicted to marijuana and had various traumatic personal issues in his past. After a 12 year old confided to a therapist that she was in a sexual relationship, the Police were notified. Although the parents of the 12 year old wanted Mr. C. to received the presumptive term for a single count of Sex Conduct with a Minor as a Dangerous Crimes Against Children (DCAC) under ARS 13-1405, which would require 20 years of prison time. We were able to secure a plea to a “no agreements” “Attempt”, in which he could potentially be sentenced to prison for over 15 years, or receive Probation with 1 year in jail on the low end. Ultimately, at sentencing we convinced the judge to give Mr. C. the lowest amount of available under the plea which was Probation with 1 year in jail. He was also able to apply for Work Furlough, which could allow him to be released during the day to go to work. He finished his jail time shortly after his 21st birthday, and has not had any contact or problems with the law since.
