Many critical immigration consequences hinge on the length of the “sentence imposed.” Each category is discussed below.
SENTENCE - CONSECUTIVE SENTENCES
Oregon v. ICE, __ U.S. __, 129 S.Ct. 711 (Jan. 14, 2009) (Apprendi and Blakely, requiring jury to find sentencing factors that increase the maximum possible sentence do not apply to decisions whether to impose consecutive or concurrent sentences; the Sixth Amendment does not inhibit States from assigning to judges, rather than to juries, the finding of facts necessary to the imposition of consecutive, rather than concurrent, sentences).
SENTENCE - SENTENCE IMPOSED - 12 MONTHS EQUALS ONE YEAR
12 months equals one year in immigration court. See Drakes v. Zimski, 240 F.3d 246, 251 (3d Cir. 2001); United States v. Christopher, 239 F.3d 1191, 1193 (11th Cir. 2001).
