DeLoge v. State

In DeLoge v. State, 2002 WY 155, 55 P.3d 1233 (Wyo. 2002), the Court addressed arguments identical to those presented by Mr. Blakeman in the cases at bar. Mr. DeLoge argued that the district court subjected him to double jeopardy by using the same offense to sentence him for the underlying offense and to enhance his punishment. The Court held that use of the offenses in this manner does not violate a defendant's right to be free from double jeopardy. DeLoge, 2002 WY 155, P12, 55 P.3d 1233.
