Probation for Molesters? For Court, It's All Relative

"I believe you have to determine the meaning from the legislative purpose," said Cynthia Sorman, a senior staff attorney with San Diego's Appellate Defenders Inc., who represented defendant James Bert Wutzke."As the attorney general has pointed out, relative means a tie through marriage," Justice Joyce Kennard told Sorman. "Buying toys and taking kids to an amusement park," she added later, "does not a relative make.Anyone can do that." Kennard and other justices pointed to People v. Jeffers, 43 Cal.3d 984, the state Supreme Court's 1987 ruling that detailed the legislative history of the probation law and concluded that the defendant qualified because he lived in the same household as the victims. "Jeffers was the one case that gave a very helpful definition of 'household member,'" Kennard said, "and in my view is quite on point here." Sorman quickly pointed out that the defendant in Jeffers "had not been living with that family for a long period of time. [Still,] he came within the spirit of [the probation law]." Sorman pointed to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that didn't distinguish between married and unmarried individuals in the distribution of food stamps, and argued that doing so for incestuous probationers under California law would violate equal protection principles. "You're talking about the difference in a life sentence and probation" over a marriage certificate, she said, "a piece of paper." Baxter speculated, however, that Sorman's position, if adopted, could throw the state's intestacy laws into disarray.
