ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP   PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

Issaquah Law Group - Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

LOCATION: We are located on the Eastside in Issaquah, convenient to Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish and North Bend. However, we provide legal services in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County and throughout the entire state of Washington.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

WA Legal Roundup - Washington State Supreme Court

State v. Kilgore

Kilgore=chimo.

According to wikipedia:

Chimo may refer to:

  • Chimo, a word of greeting, farewell, and toast before drinking[1] once widely spoken in theInuktitut language in northern Canada[2]
  • the 223 Royal Canadian Sea Cadets Corps CHIMO, founded in 1970 at Longueuil, Quebec (re-named 223 RCSCC LONGUEUIL in the mid 1980s)
  • Chimo, an active softball league founded in Brossard, Qu├ębec in 1979[3]
  • Chimo (orca), the only white killer whale displayed in captivity, at Sealand of the Pacific from 1970-72
  • Chimo!, 1960s Canadian rock band
  • Chimo Bayo, 1990s Spanish dance act
  • Chimo, a very strong tobacco paste taken orally, principally in Venezuela and adjacent countries

If you think it refers to any of those, you are sadly mistake. According tothe online slang dictionary:

  • Shortened from child molester.

One guess which use I am putting forth here.

Anyhow, two counts were reversed on an earlier appeal. The state chose not to retry the two counts, leaving the trial court to simply strike those sentences. The problem, Blakely came out in the interim. Under Blakely, aggravating factors need to be found by a jury. They weren't here. So the question becomes, does Kilgore get a redo on sentencing on remand. The answer, no. You only get to redo your sentencing under Blakely if the case wasn't final. If you're coming back down on remand, the 5 counts that weren't reversed are only "not final" if the judge decides to do something with them. Here, the judge didn't touch those counts, but merely struck the two that were reversed from his sentence. Since no discretion was exercised by the judge on remand, the 5 counts were final before the Blakely decision.
