State v. Skiggn

In State v. Skiggn, 58 Wn. App. 831, 795 P.2d 169 (1990), an error was made in calculating the standard range. The defendant was given an opportunity to withdraw his plea, but declined, apparently hoping the court would specifically enforce the agreement. On appeal, the Court of Appeals held that specific performance would be unjust under the circumstances because the error was largely attributable to the defense. The court held that although the defendant was not entitled to specific performance, he should be given another opportunity to withdraw the plea, now that he knows specific enforcement was not an option. Skiggn, 58 Wn. App. at 838-39.
