  • Internet sex crimes
  • Rape/sexual assault
  • Solicitation of a minor

What Defenses Do You Have Against Sex Crime Charges?

Individuals facing sex crime charges in Washington State have access to a variety of legal defenses. These defenses can be used to challenge the prosecution's case and potentially result in a dismissal or reduction of charges.

  • Consent: A crucial defense in cases involving sexual assault or rape In Washington State, the legal definition of consent is "the willing participation in sexual activity." If the accused can prove that the alleged victim gave their consent, it can be a strong defense against the charges.
  • Mistaken identity: This defense can be used when someone has been wrongly identified as the perpetrator of a sex crime. This could occur if the victim mistakenly identifies someone else as their attacker or if the accused has an alibi that proves they were not present at the time of the alleged incident.
  • Lack of evidence:  This is a powerful defense in sex crime cases because the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused committed the crime. If there is not enough evidence to support this burden of proof, it can weaken their case and lead to a dismissal or reduction of charges.
  • Entrapment: When law enforcement officials induce or encourage someone to commit a crime they would not have otherwise committed, it may be considered entrapment. This is often seen in cases involving online solicitation or sting operations.

It is important to note that these are just some of the possible defenses available in sex crime cases and each situation will vary. It is crucial to seek guidance from an experienced criminal defense attorney who can assess your specific case and develop an effective strategy for your defense.

How Can Sex Crime Charges Affect Your Life?

Sex crime charges can have significant consequences on a person's life. Aside from potential jail time and fines, those convicted may face mandatory registration as a sex offender, which can severely impact employment opportunities and housing options. They may also face social stigma and damage to personal relationships.

Acquiring the services of an attorney can be invaluable when facing sex crime charges. An attorney can provide legal guidance and support, ensuring that your rights are protected throughout the legal process. They can also thoroughly investigate the case, gather evidence, and work to challenge the prosecution's case using available defenses.

Furthermore, an attorney can negotiate with prosecutors for a plea deal or fight for a dismissal or reduction of charges. They can also represent you in court and present a strong defense on your behalf.

Remember, sex crime charges are serious and can have long-lasting effects on a person's life. Seeking the help of an experienced sex crime defense attorney is crucial in effectively navigating these difficulties and working towards the best possible outcome in your case.
