In Re the Personal Restraint of Heidi Charlene Fero
Supreme Court of the State of Washington; Case No. 92975-1
Decision below 192 Wash.App. 138 ( (Wash.App.Div. 2, Jan. 5, 2016).

Newly discovered evidence constitutes a claim for relief and an exception to the time bar. Advances in science can constitute newly discovered evidence. Due diligence should not require premature filing. Both the rule of lenity and the constitutional avoidance doctrine mandate the statutory construction urged by Ms. Fero.
