Division 1 Court of Appeals

State of Washington v Cartez Juwon Green: Cartez Green was convicted of burglary in the first degree and misdemeanor harassment based on a domestic violence incident. On appeal, he argues that admission of a recorded police interview of the non-testifying victim violated his constitutional right to confrontation. He also argues the State presented insufficient evidence to prove misdemeanor harassment beyond a reasonable doubt. Green also challenges the court’s conclusion that it lacked discretion to impose an exceptional mitigated sentence, argues ineffective assistance by trial counsel by failing to preserve the sentencing error, and seeks remand to strike the victim penalty assessment and DNA collection fee. COA # 851519, King County Superior Court # 21-1-03415-5 KNT.
