Guest Host: Steve Roberts

The Supreme Court’s "Blakely v. Washington" decision in June said that any factor used to determine a convicted person’s prison sentence in Washington state must be admitted by the defendant or reviewed by a jury, not just a judge. A panel talks about the resulting widespread upheaval in the federal courts and how it could affect tens of thousands of ongoing criminal cases.

Guests

  • Billy Murphy former circuit court judge in Baltimore City, and defense attorney whose clients include fight promoter Don King
  • Bill Mercer United States Attorney for the District of Montana, and chairman of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee
