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.
According to one family's account, their daughter was sexually assaulted during a field trip in 2012. Recently, parents, and others, from the same school staged a protest lamenting what they believe to be a delay of action on the part of the school administrators in investigating the rape allegations. Furthermore, no criminal charges resulted after the Washington incident was reported.
When an individual in Washington or any other state in the United States is facing charges related to child porn, it is not uncommon for them to be treated like pedophiles. These types of allegations create a chaos in the community. This is especially true when child pornography accusations are made against a leader of the community, such as a police officer.
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.
