Felony Class A

The highest level of felony in Washington State is a “Class A” felony and has a maximum term of life imprisonment and a $50,000 fine. Class A felonies are classified as either “serious violent” or “violent” offenses. In Washington State, a Class A felony constitutes a “strike” pursuant to the Persistent Offender Accountability Act. If you are charged with a Class A felony and have two prior “serious violent” or “violent” felony convictions (and in some cases one prior “serious violent” or “violent” felony conviction) you may be considered a “persistent offender” under Washington Law and if convicted you could be facing life in prison without the possibility of parole. Class A felonies include (but are not limited to) the following offenses:

  • ASSAULT FIRST DEGREE
  • BURGLARY FIRST DEGREE
  • CHILD MOLESTATION
  • KIDNAPPING FIRST DEGREE
  • MANSLAUGHTER
  • MURDER
  • RAPE
  • ROBBERY FIRST DEGREE
  • VEHICULAR HOMICIDE
