Blakely from the California to the Carolinas...

Coast to coast, everyone is grappling with the Blakely fallout. The latest news on the state of Blakely in California can be found in this article, while this quite thoughtful piece reviews the state of the post-Blakely world in North Carolina. Both articles highlight the dramatic and uncertain impact that Blakely is having on state sentencing systems.

Meanwhile, I was unable to turn off my Blakely brain this weekend, and thus you will find, on state law topics, weekend posts of note on additional media coverage, and on a fascinating Ohio case.

On the federal sentencing front, I have noteworthy posts on mandatory minimums, on alternative sentencing and on the guidelines' severability here and here.
