Man Sentenced to 25 Years up to Life in Prison in Child Molestation Case

Summary

State v. Travis Martin Lear

Story


Man Sentenced to 25 Years up to Life in Prison in Child Molestation Case: An Enumclaw man was sentenced on Friday to 25 years up to life in prison for the sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl at the Enumclaw Library on January 30, 2013. A jury convicted the defendant, Travis M. Lear, last month of Child Molestation in the First Degree as charged. Because the jury also reached a finding that the sexual assault was a predatory offense, the defendant faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years in prison. After Lear, 26, serves a minimum of 25 years, he could also face a potential maximum sentence of up to life in prison.

The case was handled by Senior Deputy Prosecutor Angela Kaake
