Ex-Con Terry Lakin

And yet even more anti-military screeds by the anti-American birthers at FreeRepublic:Quite frankly, the testimony of Major Dobson and his wife is immaterial, irrelevant, and BS. There is no direct cause and effect due to Lakin’s actions, and there is no excuse for Major Dobson not to be ready for d...

Still, Lakin is one hell of couragous man.Couragous is Major Dobson, who deployed to Afghanistan to take Lakin’s place.Couragous is [/break1]wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Ray_Roberts#Medal_of_Honor_citation]Colonel Roberts.Lakin?

I understand to Lakin WILL testify during the sentencing. Lakin's lawyer should ask those in audience who support Lakin all rise up and make a statement of support on Lakin's behalf. This gives the opportunity for CMDR Kerchner and Capt. Pamela Barnett to finally profess their support for Lakin's ac...

If they can, it think it would be best if they continued tommorrow giving them time to regroup and think.Juries love having to come back the next day.

What Will Lakin's Sentence Be?

I'm sticking with the max for the sentence, but after some thought I'm going to add a prediction: panel is out for less than 30 minutes deliberating. Unless they ask for instructions on whether the max is really the max, or if they can go higher.

Well, the panel saw Col. Roberts. He must have been wearing his MOH. Such grounds for appeal could be that sentence might have been too harsh as the panel took notice of something not part of the record and used it against Lakin in giving a harsher sentence.centerhttp://www.codeodor.com/images/facep...

I would certainly argue that could these event have occured had Lakin had gone. I would argue they could have since these events were not tied exactly to Lakin.

For sentencing, lakin should go full birther. He should bring Greg Lakin, Allan Keyes, the Generals and maybe Charles Kerchner.

It wasn’t until the sentencing process began that lawyers showed a video of Lakin voicing his concerns about the president. His supporters in the gallery erupted in cheers.Which lawyers though? Are birfers idiotic enough to cheer if the prosecution showed the YouTube?Is that a trick question?
