State v. CashAnnotate this Case
Joshua Cash pled guilty to sex crimes covered by Jessica's Law, Kan. Stat. Ann. 21-4643, after confessing to having had sexual contact with his eight-year-old stepdaughter. The district court (1) imposed three concurrent life sentences with a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of not less than twenty-five years, and (2) included lifetime postrelease supervision in Cash's sentence. The Supreme Court affirmed the hard-twenty-five life sentence but vacated that portion of the sentence imposing lifetime postrelease supervision, holding that the district court erred in imposing lifetime postrelease supervision instead of lifetime parole because Cash received an off-grid, indeterminate life sentence.
