If you have been accused of a crime in Seattle, contact a criminal defense lawyer with a proven track record.
Assault charges of any kind are considered to be a very serious criminal offense. They are regarded as a violent offense, carrying with it all the implications of the most serious kind of offender. Having an assault on your record is not easy to explain, and often times will amount to a ‘most serious offense’ according to Washington state law, making the offense a ‘strike’.
Following suit of many other states, Washington has adopted a ‘Three Strikes You’re Out’ law known as ‘The Persistent Offender Act’. According to the ‘POA’, being convicted of three of these ‘most serious offenses’ could result in life in prison. Even a second degree criminal assault can count as a strike. Any allegation of a criminal assault should be taken very seriously.
