|You can watch the full ‘Reality Check’ here. To be clear, Shaun gives RAGA a ‘misleading’ on Weiser’s attempt to get a pedophile out of prison early.
We fundamentally disagree with Shaun. Weiser accepted the case, he could have turned it down, then he went before a judge and said: “the State has deprived Mr. Warnick of a constitutionally cognizable liberty interest in an earlier release date”. Those are his exact words. We have the document here.
Further, the State of Oklahoma defines good time credits as: “Good conduct time, good time credit, or time off for good behavior is a sentence reduction given to prisoners who maintain good behavior while imprisoned.”
Bottom line, the practical and legal application of this definition is exactly what Weiser argues.
Two fundamental questions remain for Phil.
1. Why did Phil Weiser not use one of this THREE refusals on this case? As a member of the Criminal Justice Act panel, Weiser is given three refusals per term.
2. Is Phil Weiser still proud of his courtroom litigation experience, including his representation of a twice-convicted pedophile? Back in June, Weiser’s team told Westword: “Phil is proud of the courtroom litigation he has personally led and participated in.”
