Sex Crimes in Arkansas

Sexual crimes in Arkansas are taken seriously.  Not only do they carry lengthy prison sentences and large fines, but also persons convicted of a sex crime must, in many cases, register as sex offenders.  Few crimes have a more devastating effect on the reputation of a person than a sexually based offense. If you are charged with a sex crime, contact an attorney at The James Law Firm.

Arkansas sex crime lawyers can defend you against serious charges

Arkansas law classifies many types of sexual conduct as sex crimes.  Most carry very serious penalties:

  • Rape
    • 25 years to life in prison
    • Sexual intercourse by force or compulsion
    • With a person who is helpless or incapable of consenting
    • With a minor under the age of 14
  • First-degree sexual assault
    • 6 to 30 years in prison
    • Using a position as the employee of a prison, youth detention center, school, or any other position of trust to engage in sexual intercourse with a minor
  • Second-degree sexual assault
    • 5 to 20 years in prison
    • Sexual contact by force
    • With a person who is incapable of consenting
    • With a minor under the age of 14
  • Third-degree sexual assault
    • 3 to 10 years in prison
    • Using a position as the employee of a prison or any other position of trust to engage in sexual intercourse with another
    • As a minor, engaging in sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 14
  • Sexual indecency with a child
    • Up to 6 years in prison
