‘Kavanaugh’ rule will expedite trials
President Trump, at a ceremony for the new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, announced a new standard for the prosecution of persons accused of federal crimes. Henceforth, if a five-day investigation fails to uncover convincing evidence that the accused is guilty of the crime under consideration, the accused will be declared “proven innocent.”
All persons who have been held as suspects longer than five days will be released; and for those arrested in the future, failure to convince a judge they have corroborated the charges within five days will result in a mandated finding of innocent.
This is the “Kavanaugh Standard” and is expected to greatly accelerate the clearance rate for alleged criminal acts and may result in a reduction in the record rate of incarceration in the United States. DAVE SULLIVAN, PALM BEACH GARDENS
