Washington Child Molestation Charges

Child molestation is a crime involving a range of indecent or sexual activities between an adult and child. In the state of Washington, it is illegal for an adult to touch any portion of a child’s body with a “lewd and lascivious” intent.  Consent is not a matter of consideration and it not available as a defense to a charge of child molestation, even if it can be proven that the victim was a willing participant.  A sex act or improper touching is still considered a crime because children cannot legally consent to anything.  When an individual is charged with child molestation, there is more at stake than just a person’s freedom.  Reputations, relationships, and careers can be ruined by child molestation charges and it will take a skilled and highly effective attorney to combat charges as serious as these.
