WA Legal Roundup - Washington State Supreme Court
So Duncan likes to diddle kids and on top of that has fantasies of eating them. He was 16 when confined, and the state filed an SVP petition. For whatever reason, it took nine years to get to trial (many many many waivers). The psych evaluation was a little outdated, but Duncan refused to submit to another one. The court allowed it in, and made various other evidentiary rulings. You know how evidentiary rulings go, and here is no different. Not the best basis of a PRP.
Abuse of discretion is hard to get past.
