in washington state, my 18 year old grand daughter was charged with assault after a scuffle with another female.



thank you for that information - can you tell me what you would like to know in this regard, please.

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I would like to know if the judgement is too harsh, can it be appealed by the court appointed attorney.



yes, it can be appealed - chances are if there are no serious injuries and she has no criminal record, the court will order a suspended sentence with probation - or it is also possible given her age that she could get a deferred adjudication meaning, if she is successful in completing any probation without further incidents that the matter will be expunged.
