    Adultery is Still a Misdemeanor in Arizona

    Sometimes one wonders what other archaic laws are still on the books of US States. Of course, would it be worth the money to repeal these old laws? We know we aren't going to enforce them.

    Cheating on Your Spouse is Still a Misdemeanor in Arizona

    ​If your marriage includes some (ahem) extracurricular activities with someone who isn't your spouse, you're not just a cheater -- according to Arizona law -- you're also a criminal.

    That's right, cheating on your spouse is a misdemeanor in Arizona -- and a Glendale man actually used the statute as grounds to call the cops on his straying wife.

    Turns out, even if you're single you can be prosecuted under Arizona law.

    Arizona's infidelity law is as follows:

    A. A married person who has sexual intercourse with another than his or her spouse, and an unmarried person who has sexual intercourse with a married person not his or her spouse, commits adultery and is guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor. When the act is committed between parties only one of whom is married, both shall be punished.

    B. No prosecution for adultery shall be commenced except upon complaint of the husband or wife.

    Glendale resident Dave Banks actually cited the statute in a police report he filed against his cheating wife.

    Banks was interviewed by a local TV station about his wife's infidelity and says she's been cheating on him for at least 10 years. According to Banks, his wife, Traci Banks, has had at least seven affairs that he knows of.

    From KPHO:

    "If they used it all the time, maybe women or men would think twice about going and jumping in the sack and throwing away their marriage," Banks said.

    He says it took years for Glendale PD to finally take his report.

    When his wife of 17 years, Traci Banks, got the call from Glendale Detective Larry Gonzales, she was amused.

    "Everybody thinks it's funny, everybody," she said.

    She says even though the couple is living separately, they are still legally married because she can't afford a divorce. She admits to having two affairs. "It's (the marriage) been over. Did I feel bad or guilty? No," she explained.
    The officer who finally took Banks' police report told him it was unlikely the Maricopa County Attorney's Office would prosecute the case. He also told Banks "It's about time she got on with her life and you get on with yours."
