State of Washington v. Murray

This court case is active

An elderly man with dementia was convicted of indecent exposure. Although the standard range for his offenses was zero to 12 months in jail, the sentencing court, citing aggravating factors under Washington’s Sentencing Reform Act (SRA), sentenced him to three years.

The ACLU of Washington said in a friend of the court brief that the aggravating factors of Washington’s SRA, a mandatory sentencing scheme, are subject to review for vagueness under the Due Process clause.
