2017 House Bill 1163: Concerning domestic violence
Introduced by Rep. Roger Goodman (KirkLand) (D) on January 12, 2017
Referred to the House Public Safety Committee on January 12, 2017
Substitute offered in the House on January 19, 2017
Elevates Assault in the fourth degree involving domestic violence (DV) from a gross misdemeanor to an unranked class C felony when a defendant has two or more prior adult convictions for certain crimes involving DV in the previous 10 years. Counts prior adult convictions for Assault of a Child or Criminal Mistreatment involving DV as two points when calculating an offender score for sentencing pursuant to a felony DV conviction. Requires deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) collection from offenders upon conviction for an Assault in the fourth degree offense when DV was pleaded and proven. Provides that sheriffs may waive fees associated with service of writs of habeas corpus issued for return of a child in circumstances in which the person granted the writ is unable to pay due to poverty. Requires the Washington State Gender and Justice Commission to convene work groups to address the issues of DV perpetrator treatment and DV risk assessment. Requires persons receiving an initial license for cosmetology, hair design, barbering, manicuring, or esthetics to complete a one-hour training course in DV and sexual assault awareness. The substitute bill would expand membership of the Washington Domestic Violence Risk Assessment Work Group to include two separate members to represent the Washington Defender Association and the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, rather than one member representing both organizations. Additionally, an applicant for a cosmetology, hair design, barbering, manicuring, or esthetics license must complete a one-hour training course in DV and sexual assault awareness as a requirement of licensure.
