Brief filed: 01/18/2006


Washington v. Recuenco

United States Supreme Court; Case No. 05-83

Prior Decision

Apprendi/Blakely challenge to sentencing enhancements and analysis on appeal.


Harmless-error analysis can never apply to affirm a trial court’s entry of a conviction of a greater crime than that charged by the government and proven to the jury beyond a reasonable doubt, where the jury’s verdict is complete in every respect, and there has been no claim of insufficiency in the jury’s verdict?
