Happy Thanksgiving

Hi everyone:

I just learned that one of my closest friends, and most important cases has resolved. The government and Marty Bradley agreed to terms which include a maximum sentence of 15 years. He will be re-sentenced on December 11, 2017. I anticipate he will be home by Christmas. And certainly he will be released to home confinement in the first half of 2018. The court released his father (who has health problems) today on bond, pending re-sentencing. This is a 10 year reduction in Marty’s sentence.

When I learned the deal was complete, I have to admit what a wonderful feeling. Every prisoner wonders if they will feel a twinge of bitterness or envy. I am exceptionally pleased that I did not, not even a hint. Coincidentally—or maybe not—just yesterday one of my two longest friends, Hung the Pam left for camp. A camp near his home, where is son can visit. Pham is going home 4 years early as a result of an extraordinary event, his judge reversed himself based on our reconsideration motion.  The day Pham won was day of exceptional satisfaction for me, getting him home to his still young kids was exceptionally cool.

So today I am thankful to God that my friends—both good and kind men [I know from personal observation] — one (Marty) who is actually innocent and one (Pham) who was grossly mischaracterized have seen a measure of justice.

Happy Thanksgiving

Frank

Another Success Story

On July 2, 2013, the United States Magistrate Judge’s Recommendation was filed and
notice was served on the parties pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636. No objections to the
Recommendation were filed within the time limit set out in 28 U.S.C. § 636, and electronic
notice was given that no objections would be filed (see July 22, 2013 docket entry). Therefore,
the Court need not make a de novo review and the Magistrate Judge’s Recommendation [Doc.
#45] is hereby adopted.

See Order
