CASE ENTRY

Mangum v. Hallembaek

Man serving sentence in North Carolina for federal drug crimes is separately convicted of state crimes in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma judge orders that the state sentence run concurrently with the federal sentence, but the federal Bureau of Prisons thinks otherwise, effectively adding five years to the man’s sentence. Fourth Circuit (2016): Why don’t you rethink that. BOP: Okey dokey, we’ve thought about it and reach the same conclusion. Fourth Circuit (2018): Think harder.
