Your question requires an attorney consultation. It is not a simple question that can be answered on this type of forum. There are many factors that would need to be considered and evaluated. I strongly suggest that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for a face-to-face consultation and give him/her all of the facts surrounding your case. He/she would then be in a better position to analyze your case and advise you of your options.

The standard sentencing range in Washington State depends of the seriousness level of the offense and the individuals criminal record, as well as sentencing enhancements and other currents offenses. So it's impossible to give you a good answer. Further, any of these charges can se dropped down or lowered, the real question is why would the State agree to that? Lack of proof or mitigating circumstances are generally the reasons.

All the charges can be amended by the prosecutor. I would imagine, however, even with a perfectly clean record, you are facing a minimum of 14 years in [prison on the attempted first degree murder charge alone.

    Respectfully, you shouldn't be using this web-site to ask questions like this. You should retain legal counsel, or discuss these matters with your public defender. These are serious charges for which the defendant could be convicted to a lengthy jail sentence of up to 25 years. You should not be using this web-site as a substitute for legal counsel, and you should not be discussing your case with anyone other than your lawyer.
