The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to bring to mandatory minimum sentences the Sixth Amendment rigors laid down in Apprendi v. New Jersey, which requires a jury finding in order to enhance a statutory maximum sentence. The issue before the Court will be "[w]hether this Court's decision in Harris v. United States, holding that the Constitution does not require facts which increase a mandatory minimum sentence to be determined by a jury, should be overruled." Argument is set for mid-January, and the Court's ruling could again change the way sentences are determined.
