Crack No Cd Para Max Payne 1
We will, however, vacate Payne’s sentences of life imprisonment, with a direction to the district court to conduct a new sentencing hearing before a different district judge. After giving effect to the requirements of this opinion, the remaining sentences will therefore be vacated, and the case will be remanded for resentencing. The new district judge will have the power to take into consideration, and exercise discretion in considering, all mitigating circumstances (including any information that Payne now has or that may come to his attention), including those considered by the district judge who was presiding at Payne’s trial, as well as the circumstances previously considered by the district judge who imposed the original sentences, or by this Court on appeal. The district court, in considering any such mitigating circumstances, may also take into account any additional or other information that it may consider proper. (We do not intend to suggest, of course, that a new district judge may not impose the same sentences that had previously been imposed on Payne by the original sentencing judge.)
In preparation for resentencing, the district court has discretion to require Payne to present any additional information in mitigation that he may have, and to conduct the resentencing hearing in the absence of the jury.
On August 15, 2014, the district court, at Payne’s request, scheduled the resentencing hearing to be conducted in the absence of the jury. Payne, who at trial was represented by Joseph Clendenin, Jr., appeared pro se at the resentencing hearing. Payne presented the district court with numerous letters seeking leniency (see S.Tr.25-36). Prior to the resentencing hearing, Payne had, through a prison friend and his appointed lawyer, filed a letter requesting that the district court find that various letters that he had written to the district court in his own behalf since the initial sentencing, and during his other legal proceedings, had been withheld and not made available to the court (see S.Tr.36-37).
we upheld our analysis in whitley by applying plain error review, and we noted that we owed no deference to the ruling of the united states court of appeals for the fourth circuit in united states v. cardenas, 217 f.3d 907 (4th cir.2000), on which whitley had relied. id. at 158. that court had ruled that the exception clause of 924(c)(1)(a) was not in conflict with the mandate of the statute, so “where one statute specifically addresses the issue at hand, it should be controlled over a more general statute which is silent on that issue.” id. (quoting cardenas, 217 f.3d at 909-10). in rejecting that ruling, we noted that the except clause in 924(c)(1)(a) stated that nothing in it displaced or replaced the other provisions of law referenced in it, and that in light of the premise underlying the whitley holding, see 529 f.3d at 152-53, such language should be construed to mean just what it says. see id. at 158-59. we further noted that when 924(c)(1)(a) was enacted in 1986, it was limited in part by the “special rule” of 18 u.s.c. 924(c)(1)(c)(i), which provided that two or more persons who were “engaged in a continuing criminal enterprise.. shall be sentenced to imprisonment for life if,. each such person in connection with the [racketeering activity] conducted by him,. if any, conducted. in concert with five or more other persons. commit[ted]. a crime of violence.” 18 u. 924(c)(1)(c)(i) (2006) (emphasis added); whitley, 529 f.3d at 158 n. 1. we observed that the except clause in 924(c)(1)(a) paralleled the requirement of the cce special rule by specifying that nothing in it replaces or displaces the other provisions of law cited in it, and we noted that had congress wanted to except only the special cce life sentence requirement from the other provisions cited in 924(c)(1)(a), it could easily have done so. at 158 n.
