Sen v. State

Appellant, a juvenile, was convicted and sentenced. The Supreme Court reversed Appellant’s sentence, instructing that, if a sentence of life according to law was imposed, the district court must specify a period of parole ineligibility. The district court did as instructed and imposed a sentence of life according to law with the specification that Appellant was eligible for parole on the sentence after thirty-five years. The Supreme Court vacated the sentence imposed by the district court, holding that Appellant should be resentenced because the district court did not consider the analysis from Miller v. Alabama “in light of the entire sentencing package.” View "Sen v. State" on Justia Law
