Case Conclusion Date: 10.10.2013
Practice Area: Criminal defense
Outcome: Entered Favorable Resolution Avoiding Sex Offense and Prison
Description: Client was charged with Rape in the Second Degree and Assault Fourth Degree. The rape charge was Class A Felony exposing him to a maximum 25 years in prison, mandatory registration as a sex offender in Washington State, sexual deviancy evaluations, years of treatment, payment of court fines and restitution to the victim. My pretrial investigations uncovered flaws and weaknesses in the case. Consequently, I drafted numerous motions to challenge the victim's competence, suppress evidence and dismiss the case. My tactics facilitated successful negotiations with the Prosecutor. My client pled to a lesser charge and agreed to serve 6 months jail. He received no prison sentence, no sex convictions, no sex offense registration, no probation, no sexual deviance evaluations, no treatment and no community custody. Ultimately, the negotiated plea was a much shorter sentence than his potential exposure to a Rape 2° conviction.
