Morning News

The Courier Journal has an article entitled, “High court decision could invalidate sentencing rules.” And the Rocky Mountain News writes, “Ex-Qwest exec may face longer time in prison.”



Comments:
Erin Dailey, law clerk to the Hon. Sven Erik Holmes, here again. The judge is entering an order today in U.S. v. Leach. The order contains all of the reasoning set forth in O'Daniel. The news is, here, the defendant has already announced her intention to appeal. So now a case with the O'Daniel argument in favor of the constitutionality of the Guidelines (with the higher evidentiary standard and the rules of evidence applied) is making its way up to the 10th Circuit. The order will be entered this afternoon. Please contact me with any questions or comments at erin_dailey@oknd.uscourts.gov
