Hey Colin Kaepernick!!! There is separate justice. Not Social Justice. In this case a Congressman gets special treatment and he’s black.
William Jefferson , the New Orleans Democrat who once received the longest sentence in history for a member of Congress , won’t be returning to prison, under a new agreement between federal prosecutors and Jefferson’s attorneys to resolve his criminal case. The agreement is subject to a judge’s review and approval on Friday (Dec. 1).
Prosecutors and defense attorneys filed their joint motion Wednesday afternoon in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va., where Jefferson was convicted in 2009 of 11 counts of political corruption. Judge T.S. Ellis III sentenced him to 13 years in prison, which Jefferson began serving in 2012.
Earlier this year, however, Ellis, citing new Supreme Court jurisprudence, cancelled seven of the convictions and ordered Jefferson released from prison. Since then, prosecutors and defense attorneys have been negotiating a way forward, resulting in their new joint motion.
