    Legal Questions About Criminal Offenses

    No. In Washington State, there are felony and misdemeanor offenses. Felony crimes may be punishable by imprisonment in the state prison. In contrast, misdemeanor crimes are less serious and punishable by less than a year in the county jail.

    Washington State has some of the most severe DUI penalties in the country. A DUI in Washington is typically charged as a gross misdemeanor, which comes with a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and $5,000 in fines.

    Several different crimes fall under the domestic violence statute in Washington State. These include but not limited to assault, rape, criminal trespassing, malicious mischief, and violation of protective orders. While these are crimes when committed against anyone, they become domestic violence crimes when the victim and the offender have a specified domestic relationship.

    Under Washington State criminal law, there is no crime of “sexual assault”. Instead, crimes are classified as “sexual offenses”. Some examples include rape, indecent liberties, child molestation, and sexual misconduct. Each of these crimes is defined under Washington law as being committed against a victim who does not consent or when the victim is incapable of giving legal consent.
