Unreasonable Probation

By |Appeal|

In a unanimous decision on February 1, 2018, the Washington Supreme Court agreed with Mr. Weaver’s interpretation of the SSOSA statute, reversing the Court of Appeals in State v. Petterson. Mr. Weaver, who has represented Mr. Petterson for over a decade, argued that the probation officer had placed unreasonable probation conditions on him and those conditions should be reviewable by the trial judge. In a unanimous opinion, the Supreme Court agreed.
