Vancouver Sex Crimes Lawyers

There may be no other category of crime that carries as much stigma as sex offenses and child abuse. Whether you are found guilty or not, the mere accusation can have a devastating impact on your reputation and your personal or professional relationships. Furthermore, state statute in Washington requires no corroboration of an accusation to convict a person! In other words, the mere pointing of a finger can result in a lengthy term of confinement. If you are facing charges or allegations of child abuse, or you think you are being investigated for one, it is critical that you seek the advice of an aggressive Washington criminal defense lawyer immediately.

A Delicate Matter

Violent crimes carry something called the “Three Strikes law”, meaning it’s after the third conviction where life imprisonment is mandatory. For sex offenses, Washington enforces a “Two Strikes law” which carries lifetime imprisonment after the second conviction. Even still, the first offense can carry disastrous and life-changing consequences, including:

  • Especially long sentences: A conviction for a sex or child abuse crime carries the most severe penalties in terms of possible imprisonment under the law, second only to homicide. Once convicted, some face indefinite sentences with release being subject to the whim of a parole board
  • Registry for Vancouver sex offenders: Those found guilty of sex crimes are often forced to register as a sex offender and the length of time (up to “lifetime” registration) is imposed in many cases.
