Appeal From
Case No. 2017-CR-00122
North Central Judicial District, Ward County
Gary H. Lee
2018 ND 171915 N.W.2d 122
Oral Argument 5/14/2018

Highlight

Article I, Section 25(1)(n), N.D. Const., and N.D.C.C. 12.1-32-08(1)(b) are not in conflict, and the court must attempt to harmonize a statute and a constitutional provision when possible.
When a claim of disproportionality is made, the court first compares the gravity of the offense to the harshness of the penalty. If the court finds a gross disproportion ality exists, then the court should compare the defendant's sentence with sentences received by other offenders in the same jurisdiction and with sentences imposed for the same crime in other jurisdictions.
