WA Supreme Court: Bookends for Tolling Criminal SOL - Two week job training does not toll; Relocation does
Willingham took some liberties indecently. During the time the statue was running, he left the state for two weeks for job training. Under Ansell, mere absence is enough to toll the statute of limitations. Or not.
The court held, per curiam, that two weeks for a work trip did not toll the running of the statute of limitations.
Now we have a set of bookends. If I ever teach criminal law, I am soooooooooooooooooooo using this. Socratic method here I come!
