Armstrong v. Bertrand.

U.S. Appeals Court

SENTENCE

Armstrong v. Bertrand, 336 F.3d 620 (7th Cir. 2003). A juvenile who had received an adult sentence of 20 years for first-degree reckless homicide sought a federal writ of habeas corpus. The district court denied the petition and the juvenile appealed. The appeals court affirmed, finding that state statutes governing the sentencing of juvenile defendants did not create an impermissible irrebuttable presumption of an adult sentence for juveniles charged with intentional homicide, and were not unconstitutionally vague.
