Now, as he sits in a federal cell downtown, awaiting a transfer to begin his lengthy federal term, he says he should be given some credit for staying out of trouble, getting an education and doing "the right thing."

Pedantic details like this are common.

I hit my prisoner with a bar of soap in a sock. Neither of those are weapons.

"I didn't hit that man with a weapon. I have no weapons here."

They released him mistakenly, but he complied with what he was told to do. He should at least get less time in the pen equal to what he served on parole. Their error, their responsibility.

Mr. Cheeky: No, I'm just pulling your leg, it's crucifixion really.

The governor should commute his sentence to suspended, with GPS monitoring on the condition he stays in vocational training, employed or looking for work.
 
2013-10-05 06:17:20 AM  
I've read legal opinions that those who would be reformed by prison will be reformed in much less than the terms set out by sentencing guidelines. This guy actually sounds like a control case for that opinion. He legitimately thought he was supposed to be in prison and went about as if he was being watched.

I hope he gets some credit for his penitence. And perhaps some amount of work skills training so he can get real work when he gets out.

Dixon was let go when he should have instead been transferred to federal custody to begin a 16-year prison term in connection with an Iowa drug conspiracy case.

Thank god they found this dangerous criminal receiving vocational training and not bothering anyone and have instead put him in federal prison for tens of thousands of tax dollars per year.

"We don't have a hole," Shaer said. "It may be Mr. Dixon's vivid imagination. The person to tell anything to was the parole agent with whom he had regular contacts over months" of visits.

So if I'm reading this correctly, you let him out despite the fact that he tried to tell you it was a mistake but this is all still somehow his fault?

Definitely.  It sounds like he was trying to play it straight... and he's not a violent offender anyway.

Meanwhile here in Canada, a violent granny-rapist and child abductor was let out of prison last year... he just cut off his ankle tag and went fugitive and schools in the province are on lock down.

If he truly stayed out of trouble, he should be left on parole.

He obviously knows he should be in prison, so he was doing something wrong. On the other hand he was staying out of trouble and seems he was trying to turn his life around, which is rare from convicts. He has already been in prison for a year, give him another 2 and 1 on probation.

Sorry, no.  He just went off the reservation, so to speak, a few days ago.

Just hope when he gets out of Federal prison he still has the will to move on with his life like when they let him out of State.

I alone am best: He obviously knows he should be in prison, so he was doing something wrong. On the other hand he was staying out of trouble and seems he was trying to turn his life around, which is rare from convicts. He has already been in prison for a year, give him another 2 and 1 on probation.


Frankly, I would say let him back out onto an extended parole. Any delay in this will decrease the opportunity for him to successfully reform and become a productive citizen again.

A lot of folks aren't getting how all this works.  The error was made by a state employee, not by a federal employee to which he has to answer to.  Feds don't cut deals for good behavior, and since the state has proven their incompetence for paperwork, he'll be lucky not to be facing parole violation when the feds let him go.  Since federal prison system takes inmates across country, he will be out of state jurisdiction and won't be able to meet with his parole officer, which means they will issue an arrest warrant.  I really will not be surprised to read that story in a few years.  His behavior following the mistaken release, only means they won't tack on more time.

CSB:  My dad got real lucky many years back, after he got caught running from the law.  I recall him getting busted for DUI back in '83 or '84, hard to say which year because I was either 7 or 8 yro.  I was too young to know what became of that, however years later after he quit drinking and he had been attending classes for his ministry degree, the law caught up with him.  It turns out, he skipped bail.  I don't know what his first sentencing was, but they made him go in every weekend to serve his time, two days at a time.  It was so weird for a while of having dad during the week, then mom is taking dad to jail.  After that he got all his mess in order, and had to deal with the cost of SR-22 insurance.  If jail time don't get you to straighten up, the SR-22 will.
