You are correct when you say we have unequal justice and sometimes people should get more (or less) time in jail but it is the fairest system we could have. Would you think it fairer to only have radical leftist judges ONLY do the sentencing?


Pardon the Interruption

 

What is Fair is for a Judge to adhere to US Federal Sentencing Guidelines

 

These Guidelines Much like the US Dept of Justice Guidelines that say things like

 

1. We do not reveal the Crimes or the Names of People - Not Indicted

 

2. We do not Indict Sitting Presidents

 

Somehow under the Trump DOJ - the above Guidelines are Sacrosanct

 

but the Federal Sentencing Guidelines are simply irrelevant to Judges like Ellis appointed by Reagan

 

What is UNFAIR is for a Judge to say Manafort lived a otherwise Blameless Life - when a Grand Jury found enough evidence to charge him with 18 Felonies over just his Life within the Federal Statute of Limitations

 

History of Federal Guidelines

 

The Guidelines are the product of the United States Sentencing Commission, which was created by the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984.[3]

 

The Guidelines' primary goal was to alleviate sentencing disparities that research had indicated were prevalent in the existing sentencing system, and the guidelines reform was specifically intended to provide for determinate sentencing.

 

This refers to sentencing whose actual limits are determined at the time the sentence is imposed, as opposed to indeterminate sentencing, in which a sentence with a maximum (and, perhaps, a minimum) is pronounced but the actual amount of time served in prison is determined by a parole commission or similar administrative body after the person has started serving his or her sentence. As part of the guidelines reform in 1984, parole on federal level was abolished.

Crystal Mason incarcerated for 5 years because she illegally voted in the 2016 election.

 

In 2016, Mason voted while on supervised release, a form of probation. At the time, she had no idea she was ineligible to vote. She had already served over three years in federal prison for tax fraud, but because she violated the terms of her supervised release by voting, she was sent back to federal prison for an additional 10 months. That was in addition to the five years in state prison she was given for the illegal voting itself.
