Seattle Sex Crime Defense Attorneys

Washington Statutory Rape Charges

Statutory rape occurs when an adult has sexual intercourse with a minor and even if the minor consented, the adult can face criminal charges for this type of sex offense. Unlike rape and sexual assault, which involve unwanted sexual contact and force, statutory rape is often consensual in nature, but because a minor is involved in the sexual act they are not legally able to consent to the sexual act.  The penalties from a statutory rape conviction depend largely on the age of the victim and the age of the defendant. 

In order to avoid the harsh consequences from a statutory rape conviction, you will need advanced representation from a Seattle sex crimes defense attorney. The skill and experience level of your lawyer will directly contribute to the success of your case, and here at our Seattle law firm, our attorneys will know exactly what needs to be done to give you a fighting chance against statutory rape charges. 

Aggressive Seattle Statutory Rape Defense Lawyers

When a person is convicted of statutory rape in Washington, not only will they face jail time, fines, and probation, but they also may be required to register as a sex offender.  Sex offender registration is something that no one wants looming over their head, and if this happens it can ruin many aspects of your life for years to come.  

After first meeting with you, your Seattle sex crime defense lawyer will begin gathering evidence, information, and witness testimony that will help your case.  Physical evidence and witness testimony are the two most important tools the prosecution will have, and because of this your attorney will work hard to find any information that may challenge or discredit the evidence they have collected.     

If you are facing statutory rape charges, contact a Seattle sex crimes defense lawyer today for help!
