It is best to have our investigator at the criminal defense law firm of Shell & Nermyr take a look at your computer. Our investigator’s investigation is confidential. Arizona’s laws for child pornography are some of the most archaic in the world. A person is facing a prison sentence of 10 years for each image found in their possession, or on their computer.

The sex crimes lawyers at the criminal defense law firm of Shell & Nermyr can better explain how this happens, so call our criminal defense lawyers today if you have any concerns.
Can I post bond if I am arrested for a sex crime?
Sex offenses in Arizona are non-bondable crimes, meaning, bail may not be set, and a person will not be released from jail unless their case is dismissed or they are found “not guilty.” However, the law in Arizona does allow for a bond if the state cannot prove by “proof evident presumption great” that the allegations are true. That means that the state must have more evidence than probable cause but less than beyond a reasonable doubt to hold a person without bond. Every person has a right to a Simpson hearing where the state must provide enough evidence to a judge to hold the person without bond. A Simpson hearing is a great opportunity for your sex crime lawyer from S & N to cross examine and questions the state’s witnesses under oath. However, you should contact our Chandler Arizona office, for your best chance at avoiding the possibility of being held no-bond. The alternative may be life in prison. The criminl defense lawyers at Shell & Nermyr are available 24-hours a day, 7 days a week to take your call.
