Ever since my one-day stint of jury duty last October, I’ve been using the U.S. District Court’s electronic case filing system to follow the defendant’s progress through the legal system.
It’s been fascinating, though at times a bit troubling to think of how messed up this fella’s life is.
Alas, document #65, ‘Judgment Returned Executed’, was posted to his case file a few weeks ago. That might sound like he was put to death or something, but it’s just a one-page note from the U.S. Marshals reporting that he’s been delivered to the federal penitentiary in Manchester, Kentucky to serve his sentence. And that’s the end of it: the case is closed.
The appeal is still active, but I’m sure it’ll be months before anything happens with that. So my days of stalking the unfortunate Mr. C______ are effectively over.
