Amidst all of the buzz generated by the 60 Minutes story on the Don Siegelman prosecution, it has been easy to lose sight of an awfully important matter in the case.
In fact, I must admit I had forgotten about it until a light bulb went on over my head earlier today.
What did the light bulb cause me to ask myself? Why in the heck is Don Siegelman still in federal prison pending his appeal?
This question floated to the surface because I was reminded of U.S. Judge Mark Fuller and the memorandum opinion he issued on January 2, 2008. The opinion was designed to show why Siegelman should remain in prison pending appeal.
