Apparently C-Span 2 is showing the debate over the marriage amendment live rather than this hearing, but I think the webcast will be just as good for those near a computer.
Grab your popcorn, the show's about to start!

I did 8yrs. 8mo. 14 days on a 15yr."old Law" federal(parole)sentence. My guidelines were 52-64 mos.I started in 1990 and am still on parole in spite of my parole officer trying to have my parole terminated for 3 yrs. I worked in the law library while inside. I want you to know that what you are doing is probably the most important project in America today. I was guilty of the crimes charged and did not cooperate with the government in any way. I understand punishment but not our government's ruining of lives. I saw thousands of lives ruined in several federal institutions by the "guidelines" and especially the upward departures. Please put someone competent on the cite while you are on vacation. Thank you for helping people who have no one else to help them. I truely believe you have given them hope. Mike Gilbert

I would like to know if there is ant truth to this.

I'm also trying to find more information about a rumored change to 8 months and 14 days equals 1 year prison time for Ohio felons. My fiancee has been tagged with 6 years for a non-violent offense and we are keen to getting our lives (and interrupted marriage plans) back on track as soon as possible.
