CASE ENTRY

Bacilio v. Garner

Man pleads guilty to manslaughter, is sentenced to five years. Yikes! Including presentence incarceration, he’s kept in Utah prison for seven years. A due process violation? The Tenth Circuit says no; so long as he’s not behind bars for more than the statutory maximum (here, 15 years), everything is a-ok.
