Ralph Blakely sentenced again
As this news account details, Ralph Howard Blakely was sentenced in Washington State Court Tuesday to 35 years' imprisonment following his conviction earlier this month "on two counts of criminal solicitation of first-degree murder for attempting to hire fellow inmate Robbie Juarez to kill his ex-wife Yolanda Blakely and daughter Lorene Blakely." I believe this sentence was imposed by the same state judge that had sentenced Blakely for his prior crime in a way the Supreme Court ultimately deemed unconstitutional. I trust that this latest sentence for Mr. Blakely was imposed in a Blakely-proper manner.
