Olis sentencing delayed (and bail denied again)

As detailed in this AP story, former Dynegy executive Jamie Olis may not be re-sentenced until this summer, apparently because "a government expert needs more time to study the case and suggest an appropriate prison term."  Notably, in conjunction with this development, US District Judge Sim Lake "denied a request from Olis' appeal attorney, David Gerger, to release Olis on bond until he is re-sentenced."

Since Jamie Olis has been in prison since May 2004, it now appears that he likely will have served over two years before his resentencing.  Consequently, the suggestion made by the Houston Chronicle's for a new sentence of time served will seem even more sensible by the time of the Olis resentencing.  But, the fact that Judge Lake did not grant bail suggests he has in mind a larger number, and I am sticking to my prediction that Judge Lake will impose a new sentence on Jamie Olis somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 to 7 years.
