Pittman Postscript

The Sentencing Law and Policy blog weighs in with the post-Supreme Court prospects in the Pittman case:

This case will now likely head to a federal district court through a habeas action; it will be very interesting to see if any lower federal court might find merit in the constitutional claims made in Pittman.

UPDATE: A commentor rightly notes that this case will have to go through the state post-conviction review process before heading into federal habeas.
