Truck driver charged in Washington with sex crimes

A truck driver is awaiting extradition after being charged with sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl, according to local sources. The man, who lives out of state, has been under investigation by Washington authorities since late January and will be extradited to this state to face the charges of sex crimes he allegedly perpetrated. He is currently awaiting extradition after being booked into an out-of-state jail on Feb. 6. His bail is set at $250,000.

According to the ongoing investigation, a Washington woman was arrested by police after coming under suspicion of contacting the truck driver via the Internet to offer him her 14-year-old daughter for sexual purposes. The daughter subsequently approached police to report the alleged abuse she suffered at the driver's hands. Detectives interviewed and summarily arrested the mother. 

The driver was tracked down out-of-state and arrested for the crimes he allegedly committed in Washington. It is believed the alleged sex crimes took place at a truck stop off Interstate 90 in Washington state, which is why the criminal proceedings will take place here. No trial date has yet been finalized, pending his extradition. 

Sex crimes against a minor are obviously a terrible concept to imagine, as Washington residents will agree. However, even more terrible would be to indict an innocent man on such heinous charges. As a result, a full investigation of the evidence in this case on the part of both the prosecution and the defense will be required to determine whether the man had a hand in the alleged crime.
