Another good example is Timothy Hennis. Acquited of capital murder in NC but 20 years later recalled from retirement and tried by court martial. He is now on death row in the USDB.

The question is usually what do the feds charge them with.

Well I know that people can serve state and federal time for the same crime and facts, but I though they usually involved a rather convoluted path in some cases.. i.e. Michael Vick got nailed in the state courts for the stuff that happened in the state, then got nailed in federal court for stuff incidental to the dog fighting... without knowing the specifics and not having followed it closely enough to know, my presumption was things like using the mail to promote the dog fighting, or acquire flea and tick shampoo used on fighting dogs that resulted in the feds being able to backdoor their way in that way...

Does anyone know if this has passed? I was under the impression that it passed the Senate but was still in the House... That was quite some time ago.

It's a house bill and not a senate file, so the Senate hasn't seen it yet. Still sitting in a House committee.

The Wyoming House has advanced the bill. It looks like it is getting some real consideration in Cheyenne.
