Birch Bay, Washington Man Heads to Prison Over Child Sex Abuse Claims

BY ASSOCIATED PRESS 

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - A 21-year-old man charged with sexually assaulting a girl at a neighbor's Birch Bay home has been sentenced to six years in prison.

The Bellingham Herald reports that Ray Anthony Hollis was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to reduced charges of indecent liberties and burglary. He had initially been charged with rape of a child.

Indecent liberties is a heck of a long ways from 2nd degree rape. This plea bargaining is sure good news for pedophiles. Not so good for those whom they will victimize when they get out. Prosecuting attorneys give away far too much.

The victim told authorities Hollis came over to her home uninvited, they watched a movie and then Hollis sexually assaulted her.

Hollis told authorities that he had gone to his neighbor's house to get alcohol and that the girl made up the allegations because she didn't want to get in trouble for drinking with him. He says he only pleaded guilty to avoid a more severe sentence.

Unfortunately, there is no indication of the age of the child. Also, there are no pictures of him. There is a mugshot of a Ray Anthony Hollis, but he is a child sex offender from California. 

Birch Bay is just across the border from me, and I have friends living there.
