“U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson is seeking more information about the scope of President Trump’s executive order commuting the sentence of his longtime ally, Roger Stone,” USA Today reports.
“Jackson on Monday ordered parties to give her a copy of the executive order commuting Stone’s sentence and to clarify if the clemency also covers supervised release, which the political operative would have had to serve after his prison sentence.”
Joyce White Vance: “Theoretically, even with commutation, if Stone violates the terms of his supervised release, the judge could be able to consider revoking it and return him to custody. An interesting possible implication of this being commutation, not pardon.”Save to Favorites
