|Sex Offender Sentencing in Washington State: Sex Offender Sentencing Options: Views of Child Victims and Their Parents|
|The 2004 Washington State Legislature directed the Washington State Institute for Public Policy to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the impact and effectiveness of current sex offender sentencing policies. Because this topic is extensive, we are publishing a series of reports.|
This report explores the views of child victims and their parents in sex offense cases from three Washington State counties: Benton, King, and Snohomish. All offenses were eligible for the Special Sex Offender Sentencing Alternative (SSOSA), a sentencing option that incorporates a jail sentence followed by outpatient treatment and supervision.
