OSJCL Amici: Views from the Field

Justices reject appeal from war vet turned drug criminal

A war vet admits he made a mistake. The judge who sentenced him also admits he made a mistake in his understanding of his sentencing authority. Two wrongs do not make a right in this case as the Supreme Court refuses to hear the case and the honest mistake cannot be undone. The man goes back to a federal penitentiary to complete his 5 year sentence.
