OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - A convicted child molester can be permanently banned from contacting his wife, even though she was not a direct victim of his crimes, the state Supreme Court said Thursday.
The 8-1 ruling came in the case of Richard H. Warren, who was convicted of child molestation and child rape against two stepdaughters, in two separate King County Superior Court trials in 2003.
As part of Warren's sentence, he was ordered to have no contact with the girls' mother for life. Warren argued that the no-contact order was not reasonably related to his crime, and was an unconstitutional violation of his marriage rights.
I'm glad that this original no-contact order was upheld since the victims are linked so closely to this man's wife.
If this man were genuinely concerned with maintaining his marriage he wouldn't have molested his wife's daughters.
