Brief: The exclusion of evidence of any person's other crimes, wrongs, or acts to show that he or she acted consistent with his or her character on a particular occasion, as required by ER 404(b), does not violate an accused's constitutional right to present a defense, because ER 404(b) is neither arbitrary nor unreasonably related or disproportionate to the ends it is designed to serve.
