Beware the Ides of Blakely March?

Perhaps to celebrate the Ides of March, or sentencing March Madness, the technology has been cranky this morning and I have been struggling to access or post to the blog.  But all seems well now, and thus I can spotlight a number of articles in today's newspapers covering Blakely state developments:

  • From Indiana, this article examines the possible impact of the last week's Smylie decision by the Indiana Supreme Court which applied Blakely to Indiana's sentencing scheme (basics here, commentary here and here).

  • From New Jersey, this article discusses yesterday's arguments in the New Jersey Supreme Court in three major Blakely cases (basics here, commentary here).  Relatedly, Michael Ausbrook at INCourts has an extended account of the NJ arguments posted here.

  • From Ohio, this article reviews the recent Montgomery decision from Ohio's first appellate district applying Blakely to Ohio's sentencing scheme (previously discussed here).
