Division 1 Court of Appeals

State of Washington v Derrick Dwayne Branch. Derrick Branch appeals the modification of his determinate sentence for second degree rape to an indeterminate one. He also seeks relief for prosecutorial misconduct that he claims elicited evidence the court had previously excluded, for ineffective assistance of appellate counsel for failing to raise that misconduct, and for a Brady violation based on the State’s failure to return his cellphone.
