God Bless you Mr. Miller. I KNOW how difficult it is to STAND when OTHERS depend on you, irregardless of the "kind" of help a person asks of you, or what your own personal beliefs are. When Another Person comes to YOU and BEGS for HELP to save their OWN CHILD - no one with a Human Soul would even consider turning their back - as MOST of the non humankind within the secret "family" courts maintained in this fallen nation. You have my RESPECT. As Individuals, we DO HAVE the RIGHT to CONTRACT (verbal or written) with Other Private Parties on PRIVATE Family issues. Children are NOT "collateral" as much as non-biological & non-human people would like them to be. Oz will fall.

This often happens when the crime was not violent or drug related and no one is in danger with the convicted person on the streets.

In this particular case, the entire sentence is a little over two years and the appeal will take at least two years, and probably three, to come before the appeals court, so he would have already served the whole sentence before the appeal is heard. The judge made a statement that the appeal stands a good chance of overturning the conviction (based on the constitutional grounds for the appeal), thus Ken is "free," with many restrictions, until the appeal has been heard.

You can rest assured that a lot of eyes will be on him to see if they can find out the info they were seeking through the grand jury testimony which Ken refused reveal.
