  •  I am not giving you my opinion, I am (0+ / 0-)

    giving you the opinion of the Alaska Department of Law.  Even Professor Tribe cannot overrule that opinion.

    •  Where's the citation? (0+ / 0-)

      And no, I don't want to see something about when someone is "considered a convicted felon" or when "there is finality."

      I want to see something that says being found guilty by a jury of your peers is not being "convicted."

      (If you demand finality, of course, then there are people on death row for 25 years who have not been "convicted" by your logic.  And I say YOUR logic.  Not the Alaska Department of Law.  Not the courts.)

      Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia. And it's going Democratic.

        use "quoties" and say "for the purposes of this statute" a lot.

      •  God, you're a jackass. (0+ / 0-)

        I have never said that someone is not convicted until all appeals are finalized.

        I have never said that this is my analysis and conclusion.

        If you want to see the citations to authority, you will have to contact the Department of Law.  All I have ever done is report on the position of the State of Alaska, which is contained in the Department of Law opinion diaried here.  The opinion is reportedly based on case law from Washington, Oregon and California.  I do not know if it is available online, but you could try "the Google."

      •  Hmmm, from today's Anchorage Daily News (0+ / 0-)

        article titled, "When is a conviction a conviction":

        Columbia law professor Daniel Richman was at the gym Friday morning when he heard Stevens had said he isn't convicted yet.

        "I actually smiled, because he's right," Richman said.
