Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In a rape and sodomy prosecution, a denial of petitioner's habeas petition is affirmed in part where petitioner's trial counsel was ineffective for not moving to suppress his blood and DNA evidence, but petitioner could not show prejudice resulting from that failure. However, order is reversed in part where the evidence was insufficient to support the charge of aggravated sodomy.
