Chioino v. Kernan, No. 08-15265

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

In a state robbery prosecution, grant of petitioner's habeas petition is reversed where the district court erred in reducing petitioner's sentence instead of remanding to the California trial court for resentencing, because the district judge's role in the habeas proceeding was solely to ensure that petitioner's sentence was constitutionally determined.
