Citation in Washington State RCW 77.15.460.1 Two rifles with rounds in magazine in vehicle. Possible fines. Clean record since residence in 1992. Not even a traffic ticket.

The offense for which you are charged is classified by statute as a misdemeanor. Unless another punishment is fixed by statute, which it is not here, the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and/or a $1000 fine. There is no minimum fine set.

Since you have a mostly clean record, you may want to consider contacting the clerk of court to request a petition for deferred prosecution to see if you are eligible. Deferred prosecution is essentially a deferral of an entry of judgment and if you complete the requirements of the program (possibly a fine, community service, and/or probation) the charge will be dismissed and a conviction will remain off your record.
