Federal Court Dismisses Stalker’s Habeas Petition against Chehalis; Notes that Petition Could Have Merit, However

Here are the materials in Youckton v. Stinson (W.D. Wash.):

Youckton Habeas Petition

Chehalis Motion to Dismiss

DCT Order Dismissing Stouckton Petition

An excerpt:

Youckton makes the following argument to support his double jeopardy claim: (1) Youckton committed domestic violence under Chehalis Tribal Code (“CTC”) § 15.03.02; (2) domestic violence is defined under CTC §15.03.01, which sets out five possible ways to commit domestic violence; (3) the only way Youckton’s case fits into the domestic violence definition is under the fifth way, stalking; (4) stalking is defined by CTC § 15.04.01, which envisions “repeated” contact; (5) Youckton’s multiple texts/phone calls should be considered “repeated” contact for purposes of sentencing, which would require sentencing him for this conduct as one unit of offense; therefore (6) sentencing him for 205 separate violations rather than as one unit of crime may constitute double jeopardy.
