The amount of damage caused by elected Republicans is astounding.

"former governor Bevins."

Mmmm.... Let me just luxuriate in that phrase for a while.
 
2020-04-08 8:45:21 PM  
What about double jeop....LOL

Sorry couldn't make my way thru that with a straight face

Put his ass back in jail and ensure that its for a longer sentence.
 
2020-04-08 9:28:56 PM  
Bevin, no s.
 
2020-04-08 9:48:09 PM  
So how much did his family contribute to Bevin's campaign? Or did Dayton Jones have something on the state GOP leadership?
 
2020-04-08 10:24:37 PM  
Face checks out.
 
2020-04-08 10:25:22 PM  
Stupid Kentucky voters. If Drew has won the election this guy would still have been in jail, and Fark would have some sweet bailout money already.

I may be missing something, and for the record he should be put down as a dog, but isn't this double jeopardy?

Also, is this a Reverse Trump where he can pardon for federal crimes but a state can charge for the same exact crime?

Where did you get that idea?  Appears to me that this guy has been getting into NEW trouble in the months since his release.

I guess this will work as a consolation prize.

Did you RTFA?

The crimes alleged Tuesday stem from the same 2014 sexual assault. In an earlier case brought by local prosecutors, Jones pleaded guilty to state charges, including sodomy and the distribution of material depicting sexual performance of a minor.

Not really. It's a different class of charges even though it involves the same facts. Same way Civil Rights Violations work. Honestly, I'm not a fan of the practice, but given the circumstances of this guy...

I fail to see how it isn't "double jeopardy" with a fig leaf on it...

I guess I missed that paragraph.

But now that I've read it in depth, it appears the state charges were only sodomy and distribution, and the federal charge is for production, which would technically be something different.

Nah, its charges directly related from the original charges.  States it right in the article.

It's not double jeopardy if it's federal charges.

You can be charged by state and federal for same crime, or if crime took place in 2 states you can get the exact same charges in 2 states.

I bet he gave Bevins his Dropbox password in exchange for the pardon.

Ah. Within the same crime sequence, but a different crime.

Speeding as you drive away from the scene of the crime. Two crimes.
 
2020-04-08 10:37:15 PM  
Boling later apologized for the letter and asked forgiveness for the "embarrassment that I have caused this community," according to the AP.

How about YOU go and serve the rest of sentence instead you grandstanding prick.

Man what IS it with Republicans and the pedo stuff? I can kind of understand the way they all cover for each other's financial crimes and grifting and bribery and all that. I mean it's still illegal of course and should be punished but at least I get what they're trying to do. But they seem to have a bizarrely frequent occurrence of this type of shiat. Even the ones that aren't actively participating seem to like to cover it up or handwave it away.

Guess it must be all the family values.
 
2020-04-08 10:57:03 PM  
What's the deal with the greasy hair, spotty skin, glasses and dodgy whispy facial fuzz that pedophiles always have?

Is it a requirement of joining the pedo union?

Or do they all think kids find that look attractive?
 
2020-04-08 10:58:56 PM  
Bevin released all these violent offenders and sex offenders for spite. I'm so very thankful he lost and we have Beshear in charge during all this.
 
2020-04-08 11:00:30 PM  
Meh, he's back in jail anyway, what's the problem with taking a chance that he might have changed his ways and we should give him another chance? I assume after this that Republicans won't biatch about that when Democrats say it, right?

ColonelCathcart: Two crimes.


Your fanatical followers adore you, heeding your words as those of our God.

I forgot to mention he pardoned a man who molested my fiance's cousins.

That governor has jizz on his hands.
 
2020-04-08 11:08:24 PM  
Aide - "Governor, we have a pardon application from a convicted sex offender."

Governor - "Are you kidding? A criminal like that needs to stay in jail for his full term."

Aide - "He's also a Republican campaign donor."

Governor - "Why didn't you say so? Let that poor innocent snowflake go free."

I never read what any of those folks had done. Of all people, why pardon that POS?

No and yes...governor can't pardon federal. The Feds are perfectly able to file charges if the state ones didn't stick.

Chances are Trump will pardon him just to stick it to those who opposed Bevin.
 
2020-04-09 12:09:25 AM  
Yep, he's ready for a position in the fed!

A Terrible Human: Bevin released all these violent offenders and sex offenders for spite. I'm so very thankful he lost and we have Beshear in charge during all this.


Also "95 percent of Bevin's pardons, in a specific order, went to white people "

in a state with 29% of prisoners being non-white.

Because the scumbag in question's family were really big campaign donors.

It's always about the money with Republicans.

Its not double jeopardy because he was put in jail on state charges. This is a federal case.

SCOTUS ruled that this is lawful in a 7-2 ruling.

OgreMagi: Supadope: The amount of damage caused by elected Republicans is astounding.

And what OM doesn't say here is that these 3500 prisoners being released are within 60 days of parole, and that it's to reduce overcrowding of prisons during a pandemic.

Just remember in their abortion laws they explicitly spell out rape and incest as a nope for it. Why those two specifically? Seems kinda obvious given their nature, 'ey?
 
2020-04-09 1:08:44 AM  
Bevin said he commuted Jones' sentence because he believed there was "zero" evidence linking him to the crime except for the "testimony of kids who were getting a better deal by throwing [him] under the bus," the Courier-Journal newspaper of Louisville reported.

"Yeah! Those kids were getting a better deal - hell, they were asking for it! Look at 'em, pleading, practically bending over backwards to score a sweet, sweet... deal. What was I saying...?"

Christ, what an asshole.
