So maybe the plea deal did get thrown out.
It may not ultimately matter. The kiddie porn they found is a brand new charge, he could easily get sentenced to the rest of his life in prison on that alone.
"As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose -- that it may violate property instead of protecting it -- then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder. Political questions will always be prejudicial, dominant, and all-absorbing.
