For those of you that follow the Conrad Black case, you know that the government recently filed harsh exhibits in their sentencing memoranda. The government tried to portray Conrad as an arrogant elitist that sees himself as if he were above rules and laws, therefore not deserving of leniency in his new sentencing hearing scheduled later this month.
Without reading Black’s response to the government’s sentencing memoranda, one might think that Conrad deserves a little more time in prison. However, after taking the time to read the 22-page response (which I have published below) any reasonable person would know that Conrad is possibly the defendant most deserving of leniency in his sentencing in recent U.S. history.
I am proud to say that I have met Miguel Estrada, Conrad’s new lead attorney, a number of times and have come to know Carolyn Gurland, his other attorney, quite well. I would like to offer praise to both of them for their hard work and dedication to my friend.
