A.R.S. §13-705 is the Dangerous Crimes Against Children Statute (“DCAC”). Indeed, this enhancement may require mandatory consecutive (stacked one on top of the other) prison sentences. Moreover, a completed DCAC (not an attempt) may call for a “flat” sentence where one must serve 100% of the incarceration. In addition, Child Sex crimes are not eligible for the Domestic Violence designation, but Aggravated Assault, Child Abuse and Homicide are.
