    Court Opinions

    MONTANA, Petitioner,

    v.

    James Allen EGELHOFF

    Supreme Court of the United States

    518 U.S. 37 (1996)

    http://wings.buffalo.edu/law/bclc/web/egelhoff.htm

    My interpretation: Egelhoff was found guilty at trial and sentenced to 84 years. The Montana Supreme Court reversed that decision. The United States Supreme Court reversed the Montana Supreme Court, in effect reinstating the 84 year sentence.

    Hope this helps.
