Violent Crimes in Washington State
Violent crimes are generally charged as felonies punishable by a year up to life in prison, heavy fines, probation, restitution, and other court-ordered penalties. Furthermore, you will have a permanent criminal record going forward that can harm your future in terms of getting a job, an apartment, a professional license, student financial aid, and more.
Examples of violent crimes include:
- Armed robbery
- Domestic violence
- Weapon offenses
While the death penalty was abolished in Washington in 2018, other severe penalties will apply in violent crime cases. The penalties will be based on the nature of the crime, the severity of damage or harm done to victims or property, your previous criminal record if pertinent, and other factors that are relevant to the case.
