Deida was tried in Connecticut for two armed bank robberies committed with Gonzalez and Crespo. The government’s pre-trial information under 18 USC §3559(c) notified him of its intent to seek mandatory life imprisonment based on three prior felony convictions for robbery. The jury found Deida guilty of both robberies. District court sentenced him to life in prison on each, agreeing with the government that his prior convictions were “serious violent felonies” under §3559(c)’s three strikes provision. Affirming judgment Second Circuit agreed with the Fifth, Seventh, Ninth and Tenth circuits in holding §3559(c)’s three strikes provision constitutional and not violative of the doctrine of separation of powers. Discussing the Supreme Court’s 1989 decision in Mistretta v. United States, Second Circuit observed that the U.S. Constitution does not require all governmental duties to be the exclusive realm of one branch,. Further, the Supreme Court acknowledged the need for, and constitutionality of, coordination among the branches of government for matters of federal sentencing. The circuit determined that §3559 poses no danger of “coercive influence” by the executive branch over the judiciary, or of “aggrandizement or encroachment.”
