Judge Ellis sentenced Ex Rep William Jefferson**A BLACK MAN**to 13 yrs, Jefferson served 5

... and part of the criminal charges were dropped while Jefferson was in jail.

Ex-Rep. Jefferson, Free After 5-Year Prison Stint, Wants $392,000 Back

https://www.rollcall.com/news/politics/ex-rep-jefferson-free-5-year-prison-stint-wants-392000-back

Jefferson co-chaired the Africa Trade and Investment Caucus and the Congressional Caucus on Nigeria during his time in the House.

During the investigation that led to his conviction, FBI officials famously found $90,000 in cash stashed in his freezer.

Jefferson was originally sentenced to 13 years in prison, the longest-ever sentence for a current or former member of Congress. Louisiana’s Supreme Court removed Jefferson from the bar in 2015.


I wonder if anyone can see any pattern in Judge Ellis's sentencing !?

Worth a look

1. I think Judge Ellis should be investigated.

Something is rotten and stinking in Virginia.

3. Agreed. Wonder if outside influences were involved in Judge Ellis'

sentencing decision. Outside aka Russians or similar.

Like the offer of a free membership at a Trump Golf course, located in Florida???

6. That sentence is sickening. People won't have any incentive to work with Mueller

now to reduce their sentence. Cohen 3 yrs. vs. Manafort's 4yrs? Maybe that was the plan? I realize the charges aren't the same and that Manafort has a second sentencing, but still...….
