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.
When an individual is charged with a serious crime, the ramifications are difficult for that person's immediate family. This is especially true in cases in which sex crimes are the center of an investigation. Reports of criminal charges are often picked up by both print and broadcast media, and news of an arrest can spread very quickly. This is the case for a Washington mother who is accused of engaging in sex trafficking of her own teenage daughter.
The relationship between doctor and patient is built on the premise of trust. However, when a doctor finds oneself on the wrong end of an accusation of violating that trust, then his or her whole professional and personal life can be profoundly affected. One Bremerton physician is currently being held in jail after allegations of sex crimes were lodged against him.
When an incident occurs in a house and is just between two people, it may be difficult or even impossible to prove exactly what may have occurred. Intent of actions that take place may be misinterpreted and can lead to criminal charges if one feels it is necessary to involve authorities. Recently when a Washington man ordered a pizza, an incident with the delivery girl led to the man's arrest. He now faces charges of sex crimes against the girl.
The potential ramifications of a criminal accusation can be far reaching. If the state gains a conviction on serious charges, the affected person's life may be irrevocably changed. Recently, six individuals in Washington were arrested and charged with sex crimes allegations.
Being convicted -- or simply accused -- of a crime can seriously damage a person's professional reputation. This is particularly for school teachers. One Washington woman found this out under difficult circumstances: She was accused of sexual misconduct with two students who attended the high school she taught at in 2009.
When a person is convicted of a sex crime, he or she will likely have to register as a sex offender. In Washington, those whose crimes are classified as "level two" or "level three" sex offenses typically face especially harsh penalties.
Sex crimes are a very sensitive subject, no matter the circumstances. Because these criminal offenses are taken so seriously by law enforcement officials throughout the country, those who are accused can face permanent damage to their reputation, even for relatively minor charges.
Some of the most complicated criminal defense issues involve sex crimes. These cases regularly cover very sensitive subjects that can destroy a person's reputation. Not long ago, a former school teacher was accused of engaging in an inappropriate relationship with one of her students. Since being charged for child molestation, the woman has pled not guilty in court.
