Eligibility for Relief under State v. Blake
On February 25, 2021, the Washington State Supreme Court in State v. Blake declared unconstitutional Washington’s strict liability drug possession statute, which criminalized unintentional, unknowing possession of controlled substances without a prescription.
If you have been convicted in Washington State for drug possession, you may be eligible to have your conviction vacated. You may also be eligible for resentencing on other offenses if you are currently serving a sentence and a prior conviction for Possession of Controlled Substance was counted against you to increase your sentence range.
