is it a misdominor or a felony charge and does it effect you getting a job.
Criminal Defense Attorney
I'm not sure, based upon the information you have provided, what specific charge you are asking about. If you could find the charging document--usually called the "information" or "complaint"--and provide exactly what the charge is called, preferably with the statutory citation--the part that has an "RCW" followed by a series of numbers and periods--and I may be able to answer your question.
As to your second question--about whether it may affect a person's ability to get a job--the answer is that it depends. Depends upon how serious the crime charged is (your felony/misdemeanor question). Depends upon how serious the crime of *conviction* is. And depends upon what the job is. Some employers prefer people who have never been charged or convicted of *any* crime. Others are only concerned with the more serious crimes, or crimes related to the job. A retail establishment may not care, for example, if you're involved in a bar fight and end up convicted of an assault, but doesn't want to hire anyone with a theft conviction, regardless of the specifics.
Keep in mind that just because youâ€™re reading this answer does not make me your attorney, and therefore nothing written here constitutes legal advice targeted at your situation. Because the law is so often fact-sensitive, youâ€™d be remiss in relying on anything I write without having spoken with me first, and Iâ€™d ask you not to do that. If you have any specific questions, give me a call at (360) 352-8004, or contact me directly via email at email@example.com, and I'll try and help you out.
