Buhtz, Barton

In a reply to the "Payment with a Bond" thread in the TP froum, JRB mentioned Buhtz, and it occurred to me that we had never followed up his conviction and sentence. Here is the rest of the story.

Buhtz was convicted on five substantive aiding and abetting counts and on one conspiracy count. The DJ sentenced him to 36 months imprisonment. Represented by counsel, he argued on appeal that (among other things) the evidence was insufficient on the substantive counts. The Ninth Circuit agreed as to one of the five, reversed as to that one, and (by decision filed May 18, 2009) remanded for resentence - a necessity, since one of the counts on which he was sentenced originally was reversed.

Judge Panner, not surprisingly, resentenced Buhtz to the same 36 months on September 8, 2009. For some reason, his statement of reasons is sealed. It appears that Buhtz has been on bail for the entire five-year pendency of this case, but he is ordered to surrender on May 3, 2010. According to an affidavit from his lawyer, he had rotator cuff surgery in December, and is still rehabbing.

His shoulder injury probably resulted from constantly patting himself on the back before audiences of nitwits - before becoming a felon.

Any bets as to how soon he'll be back in trouble?

Barty hasn't shown any great bursts of sense in recent years, and not much reason to expect a change in methodology. Although I would think he is getting a bit long in the tooth to be committing serial stupidities?
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.
