Division 1 Court of Appeals

State of WA v Stephen Palmer Dowdney Jr.: Stephen Dowdney, Jr., appeals his conviction for armed robbery. Dowdney argues that the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s practice of filing felonies in district court, then dismissing and re-filing in superior court, violates his rights under the Equal Protection Clause of the United States and Washington State Constitutions, and other rights.
