Classification of Sexual Offences on Washington State – Part 2

Tacoma Criminal Attorneys continue to highlight what constitutes the various sexual offences, herewith a breakdown of those classifications according to Washington State law and the ins and outs of sex offender registration requirements.

Sex Offender Registration in Washington State

As in most place the laws that govern Washington sex registration are enormously multifaceted. Anyone who has been convicted of a sex-related crime is obliged to live under strict scrutiny:

They must register all their addresses

They must inform the authorities whenever they leave the state

Juvenile sex-offenders must give details of registration and/or attendance at educational establishments, such as schools or colleges

Being a registered sex offender prohibits the registered person from having contact of any kind with underage persons (minors). This may even mean restricted access or lack of it to one’s own children.

Failure to register can result in further prosecution. Sex offender registration is obligatory in connection with all sex related crimes and kidnapping crimes.
