Authorities cut Kwame a huge break again. This three day jail time is just the beginning. Kwame must know he only has weeks of freedom left before the federal sentence kicks in. And again they will perhaps cut him a break and give him three months to get his affairs in order. Maybe an appeal will keep him out two years.

The defense team is seriously challenged by Kwame's behavior. The latest excuse is that the MDOC order was about reporting "income", not necessarily "other income." I'm sure this was clearly explained to him in terms of "all income" of any kind.

There's always the ace in the hole on the jury. We don't know whether there is one secure hold-out in the group that will hand this long trial. All it takes is one juror leaning Kwame's way and for a conflict to take place in the jury room that locks that juror into hanging it for spite. Why do I imagine a woman juror? Because it has happened before.
