The system is very flawed. But patience and perseverance prevails.

Recently I walked 70 year old James Chaplin to the front door. He is leaving seven years early in great part through my assistance. He will get to see his children and wife tonight after more than a decade. He was sentence to 210 months for possessing empty bullet casings—-not a gun, not bullets, just spent shells.

601 sentence corrections 1354 years saved.

David Snoddy leaves Monday – 4 years early. His daughter is picking him up, and his brother (Atlanta lawyer) expedited him to Tampa. Otherwise, he would have been sent to Alabama (where he was convicted) and where the rest of his family had resided until they died, all while he was here. David spent his 9 years here because he had access to family member’s firearm—not that he held it or used it just that he had access. Plus, the district and appeals court got the law wrong, until now.

Supreme Court Vacates Appeals Court Order in A. Jackson Case

Supreme Court Vacates Appeals Court Order in Anthony Jackson Case, Determining a Judicially Created Default Would Destroy the Constitution’s Substantive Due Process Principles.

Eight years ago, because of a broken reflector on his bicycle, Anthony Jackson was arrested. Since the sentencing court mistakenly believed he had previously committed a violent crime, he was sentenced to 180 months in prison. A punishment three times that recommended by the federal sentencing guidelines, but the minimum punishment allowed by federal law. Mr. Jackson was shocked, he could not believe it when the judge said he would not impose this sentence if the court had a choice, but the court does not. Last week, the Supreme Court agreed with Mr. Jackson’s sense of confused outrage, and granted Mr. Jackson’s petition for certiorari, vacating the Eleventh Circuit’s Court of Appeals’ third attempt at affirming Mr. Jackson’s sentence.
