Do you have a Kitsap County drug possession conviction?

On February 25, 2021, in State v. Blake, the Washington Supreme Court held that RCW 69.50.4013(1), the Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (UPCS) statute, is unconstitutional. As such, you may be eligible to have your conviction(s) vacated and/or be resentenced on your case(s). Additionally, if you are currently serving a term of community custody due to a UPCS conviction, you may be entitled to have your term of community custody stricken.  Moreover, if you are currently serving a prison sentence for a non-UPCS conviction, but have a prior UPCS conviction that scored against you in your offender score, you may be entitled to resentencing with a corrected offender score calculation.
