In re: Sixth Amendment Challenge
Dedicated to the resurrection and reaffirmation of the Sixth Amendment in the JURY TRIAL SYSTEM


I found my friend lingering in legal limbo from an extreme tilt injustice. Not in a Third World country but right in the United States. The Rockefeller sentencing law has been repealed, and now it's time to eliminate its evil twin, Rico's Sentencing Reform. 

"We the people" as well as our economy can no longer bear the injustice and financial burden that Rico's slippery-slope sentencing law straps onto the backs of citizens. The tax burden of sentencing enhancement, current sentencing procedures, and weighty extended sentences are NO longer a luxury we as Americans can afford, while private prison profits provide us with NO relief, while posing as "the War on Drugs".

Extraordinary Circumstances
For years prisoners, like William Underwood, have been denied access to the courts after making Sixth Amendment challenges to the application of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. In Mr. Underwood's case, this occurred over 15 years ago at trial, sentencing and on direct appeal. This appalling injustice has led to the formation of the website, INPRISON.net. It's about time for change!

We at http://inprison.net REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT GIVEN THESE TRULY EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES, THE LAW AFFORDS NO OPPORTUNITY FOR MR. UNDERWOOD TO OBTAIN RE-SENTENCING OR OTHER RELIEF.

Extraordinary Circumstances
For years prisoners, like William Underwood, have been denied access to the courts after making Sixth Amendment challenges to the application of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. In Mr. Underwood's case, this occurred over 22 years ago at trial, sentencing and on direct appeal. This appalling injustice has led to the formation of the website, INPRISON.net. It's about time for change!
