CASE ENTRY

United States v. Bagcho

“It stands our criminal justice system on its head to hold that even a single extra day of imprisonment can be imposed for a crime that the jury says the defendant did not commit.” So says D.C. Circuit Judge Millett, objecting to the practice of increasing defendants’ criminal sentences on the basis of charges that a jury acquitted on.
