If you care about sentencing in federal criminal cases, read today’s multiple opinions from the Justices in Alleyne. Then, ask yourself what the rule is.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the Supreme Court took a detour from its magical mystery tour and took a shot at simply listing those statutes which require a jury to make a fact-finding that (may?) make a sentence go up? Then, we dummies could do our work without the continuing chaos (now approaching a decade in length) caused by Apprendi-land. After years, and years and years and years, is that too much to ask for?
