Evans v. Cain, No. 07-30861

By FindLaw Staff on August 05, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a rape prosecution, the denial of Petitioner's habeas petition is affirmed, where Petitioner sought a stay of federal habeas proceedings pending state habeas review, but: 1) he did not argue that he would be barred from obtaining re-review in the state court by the Court of Appeals' continued review and disposition of his habeas case; and 2) the District Court properly deferred to the state court's postconviction decision that the state trial court had denied Petitioner's motion and therefore had jurisdiction to sentence Petitioner.
