Conrad Black gets new trial

CBC TV and the National Post are reporting that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down former Canadian media baron Conrad Black’s fraud conviction. His case has now been sent back to a lower court.

In my view, even if found guilty, time already served should be sufficient for this man who might have behaved improperly, but never deserved the severe level of punishment meted out by the American justice system.

I’m no fan of the man who set aside his Canadian citizenship to accept an archaic form of privilege from the British government; his punishment, however, did not fit the crime, if indeed he committed a crime.
