A busy sentencing day in the circuits
I picked the wrong day (or perhaps the right day) to lack time to follow the sentencing action in the federal circuits. From a quick review, I see notable cases on an array of sentencing issues coming from the Second, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Eleventh Circuits today that I won't have time to blog.
But I must quickly note the Ninth Circuit's work in US v. Evans-Martinez, No. 05-10280 (9th Cir. June 1, 2006) (available here). One sentence gives the basics: "We hold Rule 32(h) requires that a district court provide notice of its intent to sentence outside the range suggested by the Guidelines post-Booker, as it did pre-Booker." As DoD notes, this deepens a circuit split on this issue, although I think only the Seventh Circuit has officially gone the other way.
