AGO 1971 NO. 39 > Dec 1 1971

A court, upon granting a suspended sentence under RCW 9.92.060 to a person who has been convicted of a crime rendering him eligible for such a suspended sentence, may not establish a termination date therefor which is later than the time the sentence imposed would have elapsed if it were not suspended, even though the sentence actually imposed was less than the maximum sentence permitted for the crime in question.
