Back to the future

CNN.com has posted a truly amazing story about a man who turned himself in to authorities after he skipped out on his sentencing hearing, twenty years ago! Ok, so why is this Blakely related? Because the judge is required to sentence him under the law as it stood in 1984, when he committed the offense. That's right, no guidelines. Wait a minute, that's kinda like 2004. After serving 45 days in prison, the judge told the man to go home.
 
This is just too much fun.
