Sexual assault, rape, child pornography and other sex crimes.
The laws regarding sex crimes are tough in most states and Seattle is no exception. Washington state law RCW 94.44.073 defines rape of a child in the 1st degree as having sexual intercourse with someone who is under 12 years old with the perpetrator being at least 24 months older than the victim. This is a class A felony. In Washington, class A felonies will be punished with a term of life imprisonment, a 50,000 dollar fine or both.
Viewing child pornography over the internet is a class B felony. Class B felonies can be punished by 10 years in a state correctional institution, a fine of $20,000 or both.
Rape in the 1st degree of someone who is not a minor is also a class A felony. Rape in the 1st degree is forcing sexual intercourse on another and use of threatening use of a deadly weapon. It is also rape in the 1st degree if the victim was harmed, kidnapped or a felonious entry to a building or vehicle was made.
