Talk about a specialty Blog! This is a blog devoted to the Sentencing issues decided by the Second Circuit US Court of Appeals. It is an excellent addition to the growing number of blogs watching law on Long Island (and in NY in general.) To that end there is an outstanding discussion of the recent Second Circuit decision in United States v. Roberts, Docket No. 04-6610-cr, 2006 WL 751879 (2d Cir. March 23, 2006). This is an abomination of a decision in that it yields the wrong result for the right reasons. The guy broke a law that was no longer a law by the time the case ended. SCSB does a nice analysis of the Roberts case and links you to the decision. There are a numbere of good posts there. Check them out.
