Postconviction Training and Resources

In 2022, WDA partnered with Seattle Clemency Project, along with the support of statewide Office of Public Defense, have created a post-conviction resource center to support public defenders and their clients facing resentencings from long and lengthy prison sentences. This project will include:

  • Support to public defenders through trainings and technical assistance for felony resentencings hearings.
  • Reentry support and services for clients being released from prison. This portion of the project will be overseen by the Seattle Clemency Project.
  • Tracking outcomes of resentencing cases across Washington State.

More information is to come. For questions, please email wda@defensenet.org.
