Criminal Practice – Habeas Corpus – Constitutional – Due Process – References to Religion – Church-Service Robbery (access required)

Deyton v. Keller Although the trial judge at defendants’ trial for armed robbery of Sunday worship services at a North Carolina church made references to religion, those references did not violate defendants’ right to due process, as defendants’ choice to target a church during weekly services “imbued their crime with an undeniably religious character”; the 4th Circuit denies defendants’ claim for habeas relief under 28 U.S.C. § 2254.
