Statement of Issues:
|State of Oregon v. Jackelin Gonzalez-Valenzuela (S061751) (A146278) (appeal from Washington County Circuit Court; opinion reported at 258 Or App 263, 308 P3d 1096 (2013)).|
Defendant Jackelin Gonzalez-Valenzuela has been granted review of a Court of Appeals decision that affirmed defendant's conviction for two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor in connection with an incident where she possessed controlled substances in her purse while riding in an automobile with her two children.
On review, the issue is:
Does the phrase "unlawful activity involving controlled substances, " as used in ORS 163.575(1)(b), a subsection of the statute defining the crime of endangering the welfare of a minor, include the unlawful possession of controlled substances?
The foregoing summary of a Supreme Court case that is scheduled for oral argument has been prepared for the benefit of the public. Parties and practitioners should rely on neither the factual summary set out above, nor the statement of issues to be decided, as delineating the questions that the Supreme Court ultimately may consider on review. See generally Oregon Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.20.
