Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Denial of petitioner's habeas petition seeking to overturn his Utah conviction for sexual abuse of a child is affirmed where petitioner brought a constitutional challenge to Utah's statutory sentencing framework whereby a parole board determined the actual time an offender served in prison, but: 1) there is no constitutional right to an individualized sentence; 2) petitioner provided no evidence that he was treated differently from other defendants; and 3) the sentencing framework did not violate the separation of powers principles.
