The petition of the day is:
Issues: (1) Whether the Supreme Court of Arizona erred in conserving that the creation of a defendant’s previous violent behavior in the penalty segment of a capital trial mechanically calls for that jurors learn about the defendant’s parole ineligibility pursuant to the due procedure clause as interpreted in Simmons v. South Carolina and its progeny; and (2) whether or not Simmons applies in a sentencing continuing for capital homicide dedicated through a defendant already in jail, a context demonstrating that incarceration isn’t a enough manner of combating long run violence through that defendant.
Petition of the day,
