Reports on case-specific Blakely impact
Two newspaper articles this morning provide case-specific windows on Blakely's (uncertain) impact on federal and state sentencing decision-making.
This article in the St. Petersburg Times reports on a federal fraud case and all the sentencing issues that may, or may not, have to be decided by a jury in the wake of Blakely. This article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review details the case of a defendant, who was convicted and sentenced six years ago of aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, arguing that Blakely now renders his state sentence unconstitutional.
