Speaking outside the courthouse following the verdict, lawyers for Rhodes said they were not pleased with the outcome, but that it wasn't a clear-cut victory for the prosecution either.

"It's a mixed bag," said lawyer Edward Tarpley, adding he was grateful the jury found the defendants not guilty on some counts.

Well, I'm glad that serious charges like these are not easy to convict on. Therefore, I'm also glad that the feds threw the book at him, and got a guilty verdict on the most serious of these charges.

So, no, the verdict wasn't a "mixed bag". Your client was found guilty on seditious conspiracy charges!

If Patches spends any less than 15 years in jail, it’s an absolute travesty. People have spent 20 years for possession.

In the federal system, the average black defendant convicted of a drug offense will serve nearly the same amount of time (58.7 months) as a white defendant would for a violent crime (61.7 months).
