More views from the academy and from the states

Professor Kevin Cole has an op-ed analysis of Blakely here, which concludes:

The Blakely decision is an attack not on severity, but on the general structure that has been employed fruitfully to improve sentencing in countless jurisdictions. There should be a better reason to carry out this attack than the preservation of a jury trial right that can so easily be taken away.

And in states across the nation, from Alaska to Maryland, Blakely is being discussed and assessed.

Hello. I filed what may be the first post-Blakely Petition at the USSC in Restrepo v. U.S. It was docketed on July 9. It raises the footnote 9 issue, i.e. the constitutionality of the FSG regarding enhancements. NACDL is considering an Am. Cur. brief. Conrad Seifert, Esq. Tel:860-434-2097, Fax: 869-434-3657
