The state Blakely beat
Though the state Blakely story continues to be eclipsed by federal sentencing developments, there is still notable news from the states on a regular basis. Consider the following recent articles:
- From Alabama, this article notes that the state's Chief Justice has called for a review of state sentencing laws in the wake of Blakely.
- From Arizona, this article discusses the impact of Blakely on the sentence in an assault case and also notes that the Arizona Supreme Court has taken up a new case with Blakely issues.
- From Ohio, this article provides a broad overview of Blakely's possible impact in the state.
In addition, I am very pleased to see Michael Ausbrook from INCourts is finally back on the Blakely beat. He has a post criticizing Booker here, praising the Oregon Supreme Court's Blakely decision in Dilts here, and assailing the "Booker back-pedaling" he has noted in California and Indiana here and here and here.
