Why Was That Man Laughing?
Convicted of jury-tampering two years ago, former Orange County sheriff Mike Carona was jubilant about being acquitted on the other counts of his indictment. But one count was plenty, as Chuck Colson will tell you. In April 2009, U.S. District Court judge (and my St. John's Church friend) Andy Guilford gave him five and a half years. Today, the news comes that he's lost his appeal.
