Santos, Santos, Santos

The Bristol paper reported here that Chief Judge Jones is trying to figure out the Supreme Court's decision in U.S. v. Santos, before deciding what to do in the case of the Lee County dentist.

Maybe the dentist's lawyer will sign up for this seminar, the ad for which says of Santos and Cuellar v. U.S.: "The Court's opinions vindicate the criminal defense bar's long and loud criticisms that money-laundering charges were being 'tacked-on,' 'added-on,' and threatened in order to induce pleas and rack up higher sentences."
