Freddie Booker to be resentenced today
I heard from a reporter yesterday that Freddie Booker is due to be resentenced this afternoon in Wisconsin by US District Judge John C. Shabaz. Though I have not seen any of the papers filed in the resentencing, my guess is that the government is asking for Judge Shabaz to impose the same 30-year sentence that was initially given to Freddie Booker. And if Judge Shabaz does impose the same 30-year term, I wonder if the defense team will consider pursuing another appeal (or instead will just be left to hum Won't Get Fooled Again or Once in a Lifetime or other Songs in the key of 3553).
UPDATE: As detailed in this post, Freddie Booker did receive 30 years at his resentencing.
