Rose v. Palmateer
Rose v. Palmateer, No. 03-35937 (1-24-05). Petitioner can waive his ex post facto right, and accept a plea to "life without parole" as part of a plea agreement entered into on remand. The petitioner's acceptance of the plea was knowing and voluntary. The petitioner failed to raise his 5th amendment challenge to the confession in the state, and so it is barred here.
