CASE ENTRY

Pope v. Perdue

Man convicted of pandering in state and federal court (for the same conduct) serves his state sentence in both state and federal prisons. He gets paroled, but the feds take custody and don’t count his previous time (even spent in federal prison) toward his federal sentence. Seventh Circuit: That doesn’t sound right. And even though he’s since been released, the case isn’t moot; a ruling in his favor could mean a shorter term of supervised release.
