Waldo Emerson Waldron-Ramsey filed a personal restraint petition seeking resentencing after noticing that he had been deprived of two days of pretrial credit. Rather than afford resentencing, the Court modified Waldron-Ramsey’s sentence ex parte to allow for the extra two days of credit.
Waldron-Ramsey appealed arguing that he should have been afforded full resentencing. The Court of Appeals disagreed, holding that it was permissible for the trial court to correct Waldron-Ramsey’s sentence under CrR 7.8 (a) because the Court intended to award Waldron-Ramsey all of his pretrial credit at the time of sentencing. See: State v. Waldron-Ramsey, No. 28897-8 III (Wash. Div. III. Ct of Appeals).
