STATE OF LOUISIANA v. PATRICK WILLIAMS

No. 2018-KP-0427

    Decided: May 25, 2018

After defendant is resentenced pursuant to Montgomery v. Louisiana, 577 U.S. ––––, 136 S.Ct. 718, 193 L.Ed.2d 599 (2016) and Miller v. Alabama, 567 U.S. 460, 132 S.Ct. 2455, 183 L.Ed.2d 407 (2012), that judgment is included by statute among those which defendant may appeal. See La.C.Cr.P. art. 912(C)(1); see, e.g., also State ex rel. Braud v. State, 15-0701 (La. 3/2/18), 237 So.3d 504. I additionally concur in the denial of defendant's writ application because the parties agree the question presented is res nova, and I believe the issue merits careful scrutiny, which can be better accomplished with the benefit of a fully developed record on appeal.

Crichton, J., additionally concurs and assigns reasons
