The U.S. Supreme Court convenes for the 2023-24 term with its first day of arguments (Pulsifer v. United States, a case on federal sentencing guidelines).
In Court: Circuit Judge Terence Perkins imposes sentence on Nysean Giddens in a somewhat complicated case. Giddens had been charged with first-degree murder in the drug-overdose death of Shaun Callahan. A jury exonerated him of the charge. But he still faced a second degree felony charge of drug possession with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a school, a third degree felony charge of unlawfully using a phone to deal drugs, and sale of a controlled substance, also a second degree felony. Those are the charges to which he will be sentenced. He agreed to a plea that would imprison him for five years. The sentencing is at 1:30 p.m.
