The Phoenix Criminal Defense Attorneys at Tyler Allen Law Firm are here to help you understand the age of consent laws in Arizona.
A common defense for issues regarding age of consent is the Romeo and Juliet Law. This defense may apply if:
• The victim is between 15 and 17 years old
• The defendant is under 19 years of age or attending high school.
• The defendant is no more than 24 months older than the victim.
• The conduct is consensual.
Another is mistaken identity, which applies to situations in which the defendant was led to believe the victim was above the age of consent and they made reasonable attempts to verify that information.
