You need experts on your side fast. Given the nature of these allegations, if the victim in the case is under 15 years old, the Arizona Constitution mandates that a suspect be held without bond, which means you will stay in jail until the charges are resolved. Your only hope in being released on this type of charge is for an experienced attorney to argue that the States Proof is not evident and the presumption of the charge is not great. The attorneys at the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor have a proven track record in succeeding on these motions and obtaining release conditions for clients in these circumstances.
