Roger Stone’s Original Proposed Sentence was “excessive” and Judge Jackson agrees

Written by on February 28, 2020

 

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Stone to 40 months in Federal Prison, for the charges of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress on charges that stemmed from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Judge Jackson did note that the originally proposed sentence by federal prosecutors of 87 to 108 was excessive given the charges.  She said the recommendation was “greater than necessary,” though she said that probation was “simply not sufficient.”

 

After the prosecutors made their sentence recommendation, Attorney General Bill Barr and other Senior Justice Department officials lowered the proposed prison sentence, in response to the intervention all four members of Stone’s prosecution then quit the case.

 

Many Democrats accused President Trump of meddling in the process and many called for Barr’s resignation which included thousands of former Justice Department officials to sign an online petition supporting this.
