It’s a crime for a “Public Official” to accept a bribe. OK, we knew that. See 18 U.S.C. § 201(b)(2).
A young man (Mr. Brownfield) who violated that federal statute was recently sentenced by Judge John L. Kane in Colorado’s district court. That young man owes his freedom to a fine jurist. And, of course, we owe our freedom to men and women who, like Mr. Brownfield, have sacrificed their peace of mind for us. (Thanks to WSJ’s Law Blog for the find.)
Here’s to better days.
