    PRIOR ADJUDICATIONS

    NOTE: References in the grid to days or weeks mean periods of confinement.

         (1) The vertical axis of the grid is the current offense category. The current offense category is determined by the offense of adjudication.

         (2) The horizontal axis of the grid is the number of prior adjudications included in the juvenile's criminal history. Each prior felony adjudication shall count as one point. Each prior violation, misdemeanor, and gross misdemeanor adjudication shall count as 1/4 point. Fractional points shall be rounded down.

         (3) The standard range disposition for each offense is determined by the intersection of the column defined by the prior adjudications and the row defined by the current offense category.

         (4) RCW 13.40.180 applies if the offender is being sentenced for more than one offense.

         (5) A current offense that is a violation is equivalent to an offense category of E. However, a disposition for a violation shall not include confinement.



         OR



         OPTION B

                   SUSPENDED DISPOSITION ALTERNATIVE


         (1) If the offender is subject to a standard range disposition involving confinement by the department, the court may impose the standard range and suspend the disposition on condition that the offender comply with one or more local sanctions and any educational or treatment requirement. The treatment programs provided to the offender must be research-based best practice programs as identified by the Washington state institute for public policy or the joint legislative audit and review committee.

         (2) If the offender fails to comply with the suspended disposition, the court may impose sanctions pursuant to RCW 13.40.200 or may revoke the suspended disposition and order the disposition's execution.

         (3) An offender is ineligible for the suspended disposition option under this section if the offender is:

         (a) Adjudicated of an A+ offense;

         (b) Fourteen years of age or older and is adjudicated of one or more of the following offenses:

         (i) A class A offense, or an attempt, conspiracy, or solicitation to commit a class A offense;

         (ii) Manslaughter in the first degree (RCW 9A.32.060); or

         (c) Ordered to serve a disposition for a firearm violation under RCW 13.40.193; or

         (d) Adjudicated of a sex offense as defined in RCW 9.94A.030.



         OR



         OPTION C

                   CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY DISPOSITION ALTERNATIVE


         If the juvenile offender is subject to a standard range disposition of local sanctions or 15 to 36 weeks of confinement and has not committed an A- or B+ offense, the court may impose a disposition under RCW 13.40.160(4) and 13.40.165.



         OR



         OPTION D

                   MANIFEST INJUSTICE


    If the court determines that a disposition under option A, B, or C would effectuate a manifest injustice, the court shall impose a disposition outside the standard range under RCW 13.40.160(2).

    PRIOR ADJUDICATIONS

    NOTE: References in the grid to days or weeks mean periods of confinement.

         (1) The vertical axis of the grid is the current offense category. The current offense category is determined by the offense of adjudication.

         (2) The horizontal axis of the grid is the number of prior adjudications included in the juvenile's criminal history. Each prior felony adjudication shall count as one point. Each prior violation, misdemeanor, and gross misdemeanor adjudication shall count as 1/4 point. Fractional points shall be rounded down.

         (3) The standard range disposition for each offense is determined by the intersection of the column defined by the prior adjudications and the row defined by the current offense category.

         (4) RCW 13.40.180 applies if the offender is being sentenced for more than one offense.

         (5) A current offense that is a violation is equivalent to an offense category of E. However, a disposition for a violation shall not include confinement.



         OR



         OPTION B

              SUSPENDED DISPOSITION ALTERNATIVE


         (1) If the offender is subject to a standard range disposition involving confinement by the department, the court may impose the standard range and suspend the disposition on condition that the offender comply with one or more local sanctions and any educational or treatment requirement. The treatment programs provided to the offender must be research-based best practice programs as identified by the Washington state institute for public policy or the joint legislative audit and review committee.

         (2) If the offender fails to comply with the suspended disposition, the court may impose sanctions pursuant to RCW 13.40.200 or may revoke the suspended disposition and order the disposition's execution.

         (3) An offender is ineligible for the suspended disposition option under this section if the offender is:

         (a) Adjudicated of an A+ offense;

         (b) Fourteen years of age or older and is adjudicated of one or more of the following offenses:

         (i) A class A offense, or an attempt, conspiracy, or solicitation to commit a class A offense;

              CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY DISPOSITION ALTERNATIVE

         OR



         OPTION D

              MANIFEST INJUSTICE
