Types of Criminal Law Charges


When you are charged with assault in the state of Washington, you could be facing a variety of penalties and scenarios. There are many actions that could qualify as an assault and many people are shocked when they realize they can even be convicted of assault without ever touching anyone.
Assault charges, no matter the classification, carry with them a great stigma.
Even if you are charged with 4th degree assault and didn’t harm anyone, having an assault crime on your record can give the appearance of a violent criminal, a label you want to avoid at all costs.

Domestic Violence

Even a small disagreement between loved ones can quickly escalate to a heated argument. People often will call the police when they get upset. Before you know it they are at your door and you’re facing the humiliation of being taken away in handcuffs. It is a difficult thing to be accused of domestic violence, neighbors see you arrested at your own home, people automatically label you as the “bad guy,” and then there is the courts taking action against you. At Evergreen Defenders we will help you get through the legal restraints so you can work on maintaining a healthy relationship at home.

A theft crime is an illegal act that involves taking another’s property against their will, without their knowledge or by way of deceit. While some theft crimes are violent crimes, others are classified as white collar crimes. Typically, most types of fraud (theft by deception) are considered white collar crimes. Generally speaking, classifications will be dependent upon the value of property, goods or money that was allegedly taken. The penalties for a theft crime will depend not only upon what state/county has jurisdiction, but also upon the specific crime.

Crime and Punishment

Criminal law is the body of law that relates to so-called “public wrongs.” Criminal law does not concern itself with disputes between individuals, but relates to offenses against the public order. The federal government, along with cities and states, define and prosecute people who commit crimes that range from minor traffic violations to serious, violent offenses. Washington State breaks their crimes into two major groups: Felonies and Misdemeanors.
