    Frequently Asked Legal Questions About Criminal Offenses Legal Questions About Criminal Offenses

    You could face a wide variety of charges in Washington State – including robbery, assault and battery, DUI, sexual assault and murder. The levels range from misdemeanors and felonies, where the penalties get more severe the more serious the crime. Are you facing any of these? You need great representation. Contact us at Bellingham Criminal Defense Lawyer today.
    There are two types of categories for crime in Washington State: Felonies and Misdemeanors. If you commit a felony, you could be sent to the state prison. On the other hand, if you are convicted of a misdemeanor, you would be sent to a county jail. Our lawyers are prepared to give you an excellent defense against any charges.
    Washington State treats this charge as a gross misdemeanor. That means you could be sent to the county jail for 364 days and wind up paying up to $5,000 in fines. They are aggressive with prosecuting these charges. You need excellent representation if you are charged with this – and our lawyers will give you cost-effective defense.
    You cannot have a DUI attorney come to the field sobriety test. You do have the right to refuse to take the test due to it being voluntary, but the prosecution would probably use that as a way to try to prove that you had consciousness of guilt with your refusal to take the test since you knew you would fail.
    Washington State law views this as when someone causes physical damage to their partner or causes them to fear that they will be physically harmed. The law takes these charges very seriously and will aggressively prosecute them. Are you being accused of this? Contact us at Bellingham Criminal Defense Lawyer for a consultation and the best defense.
    Rape is sexual assault. There are three degrees of it: First, Second, and Third. They examine what happened, whether kidnapping was involved or the person who did it rendered the victim unable to fight back. The maximum penalty for this is life in prison. There is also a charge called Indecent Liberties. Our lawyers are prepared to strongly defend you against these charges.
    Federal crimes will bring federal officers like the FBI and a US District Attorney charging you with a crime. State crimes will mean that local law enforcement will be charging you. Our lawyers are prepared to appear in either court and are ready to give you the best defense representation possible.
    Yes. It just takes them believing that you committed a felony – a warrant may not even be needed.
