Pena trailer granted

CAAF granted review in another case considering whether mandatory supervision imposed by a service's clemency and parole board impermissibly increases the accused's sentence. United States v. Seawell, No. 06-0502/AF (C.A.A.F. Nov. 16, 2006). The court ordered no briefs. The first case argued this term, United States v. Pena, No. 06-0091/AF, presents a similar issue. So CAAF appears to be treating Seawell as a trailer to Pena.

This issue is probably the new post-trial-delay issue in the USDB. As in the issue everybody is talking about. Mandatory supervised release is definitely on the minds of many in Leavenworth.
