Felony Class C

The lowest level felony in Washington State is a “Class C” felony and has a maximum term of 5 years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine. Class C felonies are classified as “non-violent” offenses. A conviction of a Class C felony does not constitute a “strike” under the Persistent Offender Accountability Act. If a Client is charged with a class C felony and has no prior felony convictions it is often possible to have them screened for a Diversion Program, which after successful completion of a 12 month probationary period, the felony charge is dismissed and the client will not have a felony on his or her record. Class C felonies include (but are not limited to) the following offenses:

  • ASSAULT THIRD DEGREE
  • ATTEMPTING TO ELUDE A PURSUING POLICE VEHICLE
  • DOMESTIC VIOLENCE COURT ORDER VIOLATION
  • FORGERY
  • IDENTITY THEFT IN THE SECOND DEGREE
  • HARASSMENT (DEATH THREATS)
  • POSSESSION OF A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE
  • TAKING A MOTOR VEHICLE WITHOUT PERMISSION
  • THEFT SECOND DEGREE
  • UNLAWFUL IMPRISONMENT
