Ken’s Comments:   No surprise here. tRump is a disaster for the criminal justice system!     Excerpts from the Article:   On Wednesday at FCI Sandstone, a low-security federal prison in Minnesota, inmates were preparing for a congressional hearing. They couldn’t fly to Washington, of course, but they’d voted to add C-SPAN to the facility’s short list of authorized television channels. They planned to watch politicians...

GOOD NEWS.  12/14/17 I spent most of the morning at hearings of the Board of Pardons. Long enough to say a few words on behalf of inmate Joe Walls, whom I met in prison, greet a few lawyer friends, meet others, hear about 30 presentations and hear the Board rule on about 50 applications for Pardons and for Commutations. They recommended that the Governor grant Joe Walls’ Application for early release. In Delaware, like 47 other states,...

Ken’s Comments:   In appeals courts, like the lower courts, judges do not even read anything filed by anyone without an attorney. Just ask Judge Richard Posner, who resigned for that very reason. READ Pro Bono/Pro Se Law Group – Richard Posner at the Helm! Ken Abraham Consulting on the Project. Final name: Team Posner Law Group    I have read, literally, thousands of cases where it was clear that the decision below was merely...
