Arias v. Hudson, No. 08-4513

By FindLaw Staff on December 16, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

An order conditionally granting habeas relief to a defendant convicted of rape and related crimes and sentenced to an indeterminate sentence with a minimum term of thirty years and a maximum term of life is reversed as the sentence does not violate Blakely because the judicial fact-finding at issue merely increased his minimum sentence without affecting his maximum term of imprisonment, and thus, defendant's sentence does not violate the Sixth Amendment.
