Washington Sex Crimes

Sex crimes are among the most serious criminal charges an individual can face. Being accused of a sex crime can severely compromise your reputation, social standing, career, and personal relationships. Furthermore, if you are convicted of certain sex offenses, you will be subject to the regulations of mandatory sex offender registration for the remainder of your life. This information is made public knowledge, making housing, job opportunities, and other life situations difficult. Failure to register as a sex offender when required to do so will result in further legal penalties.

Sex crimes in the state of Washington include sexual assault, rape, rape of a child, child molestation, sexual misconduct with a minor, indecent liberties by forcible compulsion, indecent liberties when the victim is incapable of consent, indecent liberties with a person who is mentally disabled, indecent liberties committed by a health care provider, indecent liberties on the resident of a facility, indecent liberties against an elder adult, custodial sexual misconduct, incest, sexual exploitation of a minor, child pornography, communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, and commercial sex abuse of a minor. These crimes are generally charged as felonies.

The Need for Experienced Legal Help

Defending yourself against sex crime allegations can be an uphill battle against the prejudicial considerations of others; sex crime offenders are met with disdain by the public and law enforcement. Because of this, you should not hesitate to retain an experienced and committed attorney who will ensure that your legal rights are protected and who will work vigorously to help you achieve the best possible outcome. At the Matto Law Firm, PLLC Seattle criminal defense lawyer Jag Matto understands the difficulties and stress involved in sex offense cases and how important your legal defense will be in determining your future.
