Sex Offenses

If you have been charged with a sex offense, or think you might be at risk, please contact a qualified felony attorney immediately to discuss your options.  Penalties for sex offenses can range from treatment based alternatives like Special Sex Offender Sentencing Alternatives (SSOSA) to life in prison and a requirement of lifetime registration as a sex offender.  Examples of Washington felony sex offenses include:

  • Rape in the First Degree
  • Rape in the Second Degree
  • Rape in the Third Degree
  • Rape of a Child in the First Degree
  • Rape of a Child in the Second Degree
  • Rape of a Child in the Third Degree
  • Child Molestation in the First Degree
  • Child Molestation in the Second Degree
  • Child Molestation in the Third Degree
  • Sexual Misconduct with a Minor in the First Degree
  • Sexual Misconduct with a Minor in the Second Degree
  • Indecent Liberties
  • Voyeurism

Sentences for those convicted of sex offenses are severe.  Additionally, for some of the most serious offenses, Washington law provides for indeterminate sentences.  This means that a convicted offender can remain incarcerated until the sentence review board deems them safe to re-enter society.

Again, if you think you may be charged with a sex offense contact an experienced Snohomish County felony attorney immediately.  Often, seeking early advice on these types of cases can make a great deal of difference in the outcome of the case.
