State v. CarpenterAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the district court sentencing Defendant to lifetime postrelease supervision after he was convicted of burglary, theft, criminal damage to property, aggravated indecent liberties with a child, and criminal sodomy, holding that due to the nature and timing of his offenses, Defendant was subject to lifetime postrelease supervision under Kan. Stat. Ann. 22-371(d)(1)(G).
While Defendant's appeal was pending, the Supreme Court released State v. Brook, 440 P.3d 570 (Kan. 2019), ruling that section 22-3717 provided that persons who, like Defendant, committed sexually violent offenses after July 1, 2006 were subject to lifetime postrelease. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the date of the sexually violent offense was the controlling factor, with section 22-3717(d)(1)(G) applying to persons who, like Defendant, committed sexually violent crimes on or after July 1, 2006.
