    Not much to talk about though, now we have to wait for each side to file a brief and be heard. It could
    take months.

    We don't know the reasoning for the SC decision to review the case, it could have been for this reason or for other reasons. We only know what the PDR raises as questions about the appeal. However, this issue was also raised during the oral arguments of the appeal. So, quite possibly, yes.

    NC Supreme Court OK to take Jason Young trial

    Posted: Aug 20, 2014
    http://www.wncn.com/story/26331639/n...on-young-trial
    North Carolina's highest court has agreed to consider whether a Raleigh man convicted by jurors of killing his pregnant wife in 2006 should get a new trial that a lower court ordered in April
    The state Supreme Court announced Wednesday it had granted the request by state attorneys for justices to review the case of Jason Lynn Young.
    The Court of Appeals in April vacated Young's 2012 first-degree murder conviction for the death of his wife, Michelle, because it said the trial judge shouldn't have allowed evidence about a wrongful death lawsuit and a child custody complaint. Young remains behind bars.
    The three-judge Court of Appeals ruling was unanimous, so the Supreme Court wasn't obligated to review the case.
    JUSTICE FOR MICHELLE AND RYLAN

    I wasn't expecting the SC to agree to review this case and was completely surprised by that decision. Pleased, but surprised. I don't know the timing at all, but it won't surprise me if this pushes the case out another 6 months or more just for the SC portion to be resolved one way or the other, and then another 6 months to a year if they uphold the appeals court and a new trial is ordered.

    With the latest plea deal going down in Raleigh, I can't help but wonder if Young is not thinking
    "hey, what about me?"

    Thanks, JF and Sunshine05!

    It looks like the reason the state asked for the review is because the appellate court did not render an opinion on two key points and that is why the Supreme Court agreed to review it. The Attorney General's office might feel there is not sufficient evidence to justify the expense of a new trial. The NC Innocence Commission is under the Supreme Court. There is an overwhelming lack of factual evidence against Jason Young. DNA pointing to someone else has been the reason other convictions have been overturned.

    JMO

    The Court of Appeals did not
    address defendant's claims of expression of judicial opinion and sufficiency of the
    evidence. M., slip op. at 44

    If nothing else, we may be hearing the sounds of a plea deal......I guess they would do the same thing they did to Brad, ask Jason to give up custody and rights to his daughter for a lesser sentence.
    I don't know, we will see.

    Yes, I believe so..... the briefs will then be reviewed and there will be a decision if/when to hold oral arguments if it comes down to that...

    It is very possible if Jason is awarded a new trial, we may see a plea deal offered, as this would be his 3rd trial..JMO

    Jason Young's former attorney, Mike Klinkosum, will now represent Michael Peterson in his second trial

    http://www.wral.com/mike-peterson-ge...rial/14109012/

    Peterson refused a plea deal that would give him no jail time if he accepted a 2nd degree murder charge,,
