Arcanum: This is a bizarre story. They try to connect it to a politician for no apparent reason.

And apparently people sentenced to a higher penalty can get out earlier? That's not very just.

If the guy needs a substance abuse program and there's something in place for that, why not go along with the deal? If it's OK for people sentenced to 37 months to get out in 27 and get a substance abuse program, why would anyone object to someone sentenced to 36 months getting out in 27 with the program?

People are so petty these days.

That would be out in 25, for there are 12 months in a year.

That's an outrageous attempt to game the system, to punish him they should reduce his sentence, so he's even further away from his 37month goal. Take 12 months off. That'll teach him a lesson.

Millions of dollars earned and 3 years in jail (maybe 2). Sign me up

Think of it as a job not a sentence.

Mass. and the Feds aren't the only place with screwed-up sentencing guidelines.

The only guy I personally know who was in a West Coast prison is actually innocent of his follow-up "crime"...he plead out to his original offense, and was out on parole for good behavior, but his local anti-gang unit had a quota to fill, doncha know, so he went back inside on a petty violation. He only had a month on his sentence, and it would've taken THREE months to appeal the BS, so back inside he went, at taxpayer expense.

His "crime" was "white supremacist activity"...sounds like a legit parole violation, right?

Well, the only "evidence" of that was a photo...of him and a bunch of young Hawaiian guys.

Yes, you read that right.

Fortunately, they're letting out violent offenders to make room for his sort of hardened criminal...

He wants to get released from jail retroactively, should talk to mitt for advice on how that works.

This is new?

I remember when my class took a tour of the county sherrif's office in grade school (this would have been over 15 years ago) and the cop doing the tour told us that defendants commonly tried to get over 90 day sentences because those offenders were sent to an overcrowded state prison and would be released sooner.

Any decent attorney with no chance at winning is at least going to try and game the system for the best possible sentence.

So, meet the guy in the middle and tack on 3 weeks. That comes to 1 week short of getting his 1 year discount for attending alcohol counselling sessions. If he complains tack on 5 more days, so he'll come up two days short of the 1 year discount.
