There are virtually no other crimes that carry the same stigma and costs. Those convicted face serious penalties like prison terms and classification as a registered sex offender.

Sex crimes in Washington are addressed under RCW Title 9a Chapter 44 and cover a wide variety of offenses. They range in severity, possible consequences, and encompass some complex legal issues like consent and mental capacity. Some of the most common sex crimes in Washington include:


Sexual Assault

Often used when referring to various sex crimes such as rape or forced sexual intercourse without the other person’s consent.

Indecent Exposure

Intentionally exposing your private parts in a public space or place where other people are present and making any open and obscene exposure of his or her person or the person of another knowing that the conduct is likely to cause reasonable affront or alarm.


This relates to engaging or agreeing or offering to engage in sexual conduct with another person in return for a fee.

The penalties for sex crime convictions are particularly harsh in Washington and depending on your criminal history, the offense in question, and the surrounding circumstances you will face:
