As previously discussed, Conrad Black was freed on bail (see here) following the Supreme Court's decision that vacated and remanded his case back to the Seventh Circuit in light of its holding that honest services applies only to schemes premised on bribery or kickbacks.
Now check out Conrad Black's piece in the National Post, telling his impressions of some aspects of our criminal justice system. (link on Doug Berman's Sentencing Blog here). One of the dangers for the government of incarcerating an intelligent writer is that they will offer us the transparency that we seldom get to see. Thank you Conrad Black.
