State v. Waylon James Hubbard, WSSC #95012-1

WACDL filed an amicus brief on behalf of Mr. Hubbard supporting his petition for review to the Washington supreme court from a decision of the court of appeals issued in his case under cause #49029-3, on the issue of what should be the effective date of an Order of Discharge based on RCW 9.94A.637 for an offender not under DOC supervision.

WACDL Issues

WACDL amicus addresses the issues of whether the Court of Appeals’ interpretation of RCW 9.94A.637, which causes considerable delay in eligibility for vacating a criminal record and significant harmful consequences to employment opportunities, is an issue of substantial public interest such that review by the Washington Supreme Court is warranted. And, should the effective date of a certificate and order of discharge under RCW 9.94A.637 be the date for which there is verification that all conditions of a sentence has been satisfied, as the trial court concluded, or instead is the effective date the much later date when the court received notice of sentence completion as the court of appeals decided in its opinion.
