FROM THE COURTHOUSE
• A Centralia woman arrested late last year for coercing a girl into giving her oral sex entered into a plea agreement in which she was convicted of four counts of third-degree rape of a child. Chrystal G. Munoz-Rosales was given a five-year sentence but will spend 12 months in jail and the rest of time in a program that includes sexual deviancy treatment, according to the Lewis County Prosecutor’s Office. During that time, she’ll be on community custody with the state Department of Corrections, Lewis County Senior Deputy Prosecutor Will Halstead said. The deal was made under the so-called Special Sex Offender Sentencing Alternative, something that can’t be done if the victim and perpetrator are strangers to each other, according to Halstead. “If she fails out at any point, she’ll got to prison for whatever time is left,” Halstead said. A charge of first-degree rape of a child was dropped, relating to an early allegation an incident occurred when the girl was 9 years old. The investigation began when the Centralia Police Department was given information from Child Protective Services regarding a 16-year-old girl last September. The abuse took place in a shared household, according to prosecutors. No assaultive violence was alleged. Munoz-Rosales pleaded guilty several weeks ago in Lewis County Superior Court and was sentenced on Thursday. Sixty months is the top of the standard sentencing range for the offense, involving a child who is 14 years old or 15 years old. Halstead said the victim agreed with the plea deal if Munoz-Rosales was found eligible for the SSOSA, though changed her mind on Thursday and said she’d like the now 38-year-old woman to spend the entire time locked up. Among the list of criteria Munoz-Rosales had to meet was taking a polygraph to prove there were no other victims, Halstead said. Judge James Lawler also ordered Munoz-Rosales to have no contact with any minors other than her own son.
