Welch v. United States Amicus
CWCY - October 07, 2010
Type: Sample Brief Or Motion
Topic: Juveniles and Wrongful Convictions
Devin Welch received an enhanced sentence in adult court because of his previous juvenile adjudication, even though he had been adjudicated delinquent without the benefit of a jury trial. This amicus brief urges the USSCT to take on this case and focuses on the unreliability of juvenile adjudications.
