CASE ENTRY

State v. Gregory

Report: Between 1981 and 2014, black defendants in Washington state courts were 4.5 times more likely to be sentenced to death than similarly situated white defendants. Washington Supreme Court: The state’s death penalty violates the state constitution because it is administered arbitrarily and in a racially biased way.
