United States Ninth Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

Weeden v. Johnson, 14-17366

In a habeas corpus petition challenging petitioner's California felony-murder conviction for her role in a bungled robbery that occurred when she was fourteen, the district court's denial of the petition is reversed where: 1) had counsel presented to the jury the opinion of a psychologist who evaluated petitioner after the verdict, the probability of a different result is sufficient to undermine confidence in the outcome; and 2) counsel's deficient performance therefore requires issuance of the writ.
