C. The provisions of this code do not apply to or govern the construction of and punishment for any offense committed prior to 12:01 a.m. on February 28, 1996, or to the construction and application of any defense to a prosecution for such an offense. Such an offense must be construed and punished according to the provisions of law existing in the city at the time of the commission thereof in the same manner as if this code had not been enacted.

D. The sections of the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) and the King County Code (KCC), now in effect or as subsequently amended, specifically enumerated in this chapter, are adopted by reference in this code.

E. Section captions are for organizational purposes only and shall not be construed as part of this code. [Ord. 73 § 1, 1996]

9.10.020 Purposes – Principles of construction.

A. The general purposes of the provisions governing the definition of offenses are:

1. To forbid and prevent conduct that inflicts or threatens substantial harm to individual or public interests;

2. To safeguard conduct that is without culpability from condemnation as criminal;

3. To give fair warning of the nature of the conduct declared to constitute an offense; and

4. To differentiate on reasonable grounds between serious and minor offenses, and to prescribe proportionate penalties for each.

B. The provisions of this code shall be construed according to the fair import of their terms, and when the language is susceptible of differing constructions, it shall be interpreted to further the general purposes stated in this code.

C. In adopting state statutes by reference, only those crimes and offenses within the jurisdiction of a municipality are intended to be adopted and, in those sections adopted which define both misdemeanors and felonies, only the language applicable to misdemeanors and gross misdemeanors is to be applied. [Ord. 73 § 2, 1996]

On a second or subsequent conviction, the fine shall not be less than $500.00. These fines shall be in addition to any other fine or penalty imposed. Unless the court finds that the imposition of the minimum imprisonment will pose a substantial risk to the defendant’s physical or mental well-being or that local jail facilities are in an overcrowded condition, the term of imprisonment shall not be suspended or deferred. If the court finds such risk or overcrowding exists, it shall sentence the defendant to a minimum of 40 hours of community service. If a minimum term of imprisonment is suspended or deferred, the court shall state in writing the reason for granting the suspension or deferral and the facts upon which the suspension or deferral is based. Unless the court finds the person to be indigent, the minimum fine shall not be suspended or deferred.

D. The court may impose restitution as provided in RCW 9A.20.030.

E. In the event there is a conflict in the penalties which can be imposed upon conviction for a specific offense between the provisions of the Shoreline criminal code and the Revised Code of Washington, the penalty provisions of the Revised Code of Washington shall apply.

9.10.070 Proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

A. Every person charged with an offense is presumed innocent unless proven guilty by competent evidence establishing each element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt.

9.10.285 Stay out of drug areas.

A. Purpose. A court may issue an order prohibiting a person from entering or remaining in a designated “stay out of drug area” (SODA). This prohibition is one means of addressing illegal drug activity; activity that the city finds is threatening the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Shoreline. By designating specific areas, public or private, within the city of Shoreline as a SODA, the city, in conjunction with the court, is working towards eliminating illegal drug possession, use, sales and other criminal activity associated with these activities.

B. Designation of Stay Out of Drug Areas.

1. Certain areas of the city are designated and identified as SODAs based on repeat, high-level incidents of narcotics-related activities occurring within the area. The perimeters of a SODA may be defined using street names or numbers and shall include all real property contained therein, where drug sales, possession of drugs, pedestrian or vehicular traffic attendant to drug activity, or other activity associated with drug offenses confirms a pattern associated with illegal drug trafficking and use. The area shall include the full width of streets, alleys, and sidewalks on the perimeter, common areas, planting strips, parks and parking areas within the area described using the streets as boundaries.

2. The following described areas are identified and designated as SODAs:

a. Aurora Avenue North from North 145th Street to North 205th Street, including one block east and west of Aurora Avenue;

b. Aurora Transit Center, located at 1524 North 200th Street;

c. Echo Lake City Park located at 1521 North 200th Street;

d. Interurban Trail corridor, located between North 145th Street and North 205th Street.

The boundaries of the designated SODAs identified by this section shall be shown and delineated on the Stay Out of Drug Area (SODA) map accompanying the ordinance codified in this section and hereby incorporated by reference. The SODA map shall be maintained as such and will be on file at City Hall.

3. Designated SODAs shall be reviewed every two years by the city attorney and the chief of police to ensure their continued effectiveness. Recommendations for de-designation or modification of an existing SODA or for the designation of a new SODA shall be subject to approval by the city council.

C. Issuance of SODA Order.

1. The city attorney, after consultation with the chief of police, may seek a SODA order from the court as a condition of pre-trial release or a condition of sentence, deferral, or suspension for any person.

2. A court may enter a SODA order prohibiting a person from entering or remaining in a designated SODA for up to one year. The SODA order shall be in writing and shall bear the following language:

Violation of this court order is a criminal offense under SMC 9.10.285 and shall constitute a separate criminal offense. Violators will be subject to arrest.

3. The court in its discretion may allow a person subject to a SODA order to enter a SODA under certain conditional exceptions. Exceptions to the SODA order may include travel to and from and/or remaining in the following locations so long as these locations apply to or are used by the person who is subject of the SODA order:

a. Place of residence;

b. Court/government offices (while open to the public);

c. Social services provider or treatment center;

d. Place of employment;

e. School;

f. Attorney’s office; or

g. Medical services.

If the court allows for exceptions in the SODA order, the person subject to that order is required to have a copy of the order on their person whenever they are traveling through a restricted designated SODA(s). Failure to present this order upon request by law enforcement is a violation of the SODA order and subject to the penalties set forth in this chapter. For the purpose of this section, “travel” is defined as movement on foot or in a vehicle from one point to another without delay.

4. Upon entering a SODA order, the clerk of the court shall forward a copy of the order to the city of Shoreline police department on or before the next judicial day following issuance of the order. Upon receipt, the Shoreline police shall enter the order into the appropriate law enforcement information system, noting the expiration date of the SODA order.

D. Notice of SODA Order. A person is deemed to have notice of the SODA order when:

1. The signature of the person prohibited in the order is affixed to the bottom of the order, acknowledging receipt of the order; or

2. The order otherwise indicates that the person appeared before the court at the time order was entered.

E. Enforcement Procedure.

1. If a law enforcement officer has probable cause to believe that a person subject to a SODA order is knowingly violating that order, such person may be apprehended and arrested without the necessity for any warrant or additional court order.

2. The chief of police, in consultation with the city attorney, shall have the authority to promulgate procedures for the administration of this chapter.

F. Penalties.
