Re: “Judge won't relent, Mike Maggio must report to federal prison Wednesday

He flunked the lie dectector by telling the truth. If he did these things, why r not Morton and Baker in court. Let the truth out an innocent man is in jail tonight. All the haters can sleep tight.

Re: “Wendell Griffen to legislature: Constitution protects speech and freedom. Do you?

It seems that Wendell Griffin is protected by the constitution as to freedom of speech as he should be. Why was it Judge Mike Maggio was not protected by the same constitution.

Re: “Maggio asks for leniency in sentencing; cites bullying as child, punishment already suffered

How can Maggio be guilty of conspiracy? Without Baker or Morton being charged? Maggio told the U. S. Attorney, there was no, quid pro quo deal, and this is not what the Government wanted to hear. He knew that his lowering of verdict required an automatic review. The woman was in the nursing home for less than 24 hours, and almost dead when she got there. He got bad advice from the Hilburn law firm. Most important. He is my friend, he let me live at his home for 6 months after my divorce. I saw a gentleman who essentially as a single parent, showed his children what was right or wrong and honesty in all dealings. He had a lady friend at the time he was seeing regularly. He never stayed the night at her house or her at his. I knew they liked each other and I ask him what's the deal, you never bring her over late at night. He said, Charles she has two daughters and my daughter is here with us a lot, I don't want to think ever that I caused them to get the wrong impression. It might cause my children or the children of the woman I love to get the wrong idea of what is morally right. I could never live with that. To me that's a real man. Judge Mike is my friend and I will never apologize for that. He is forever welcome in my home. Sorry to get so personal, but this is a good guy, that is getting hosed in this deal.

Re: “Federal judge hears arguments over Maggio's attempt to withdraw guilty plea in bribery case

Sounds like the Federal Judge is doing his job, in that he is considering the Law and will make a decision based on The Law of The United States of America. He can see thru the Smoke and Mirrors. He will rule on the Law itself. His quote, shows his care to follow those laws.

Judge Miller ask, "can I send a man to prison for pleading guilty to a crime he can't be charged with anyway."

That's what this all hinges on. The Law.

Re: “Former Circuit Judge Mike Maggio asks to withdraw guilty plea on federal bribery charges

Oh and the jury in the nursing home case voted 12-0 that the nursing home was NOT liable for her death.
9-3 for negligence.

They chose to accept the million dollars. They didn't have to.

Of course those are public record facts.
As far a Gilbert Baker goes, in my opinion is that he is pond scum. I'm not arguing with anyone on this, I'm saying look this over and consider the applicable law. This doesn't appear to be a Federal Issue. At least the US appeals courts have ruled that way in five previous cases. It takes two to have a bribe, Judge Maggio can't bribe himself now can he ?

Re: “Former Circuit Judge Mike Maggio asks to withdraw guilty plea on federal bribery charges

Sometimes innocent men plead guilty. It is my understanding this man pled because of government threats. It seems he told the Feds there was no quid pro quo. I believe the Government promised Maggio that he would not be sentenced until after Baker and Morton went to trial, and that Morton's and Bakers indictments were imminent. Almost two years later no indictments. It takes two to have bribery which is essentially a conspiracy. With no one else charged, you can't have a crime. The other wrench in the case is there does not appear to be a federal crime violation because on 5 occasions the United States appeals court has ruled these type monies are not federally insured funds and any remedies should be addressed on the state level. I believe a special prosecutor was called from New York to get the Judge prosecuted and then went back to New York only to leave the Little Rock Feds with a misguided mess. Say what you want about the Judge but it appears the Feds barked up the wrong tree in this ruining one mans life and sullying the fine reputations of two others. It's time to quit spending taxpayer money on this one.
