A federal judge on Monday ordered the parties in Roger Stone’s criminal case to clarify the “scope” of President Donald Trump’s commutation of his long-term custodial sentence.
In her order in the Stone case, she said that Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s request was a response to the “problem raised by the U.S. Probation Office”, especially regarding whether Trump’s leniency treatment was applicable On the issue of “solitary confinement or imprisonment release period”
Judge Jackson of the U.S. District Court in Washington DC also requested a copy of Trump’s executive order.
A few days before the 67-year-old Republican agent was set to report to the Federal Correctional Service in Georgia, Trump reduced Stone’s 40-month jail sentence on Friday night.
When the White House announced the transfer, it was announced: “Roger Stone is now a free man!”-but it is clearly unclear whether the 24-month trial period of Stone’s sentence will still apply.
After Stone completed 40 months of imprisonment, hindered and tampered with the witness’s imprisonment, these two years of supervised release took effect. Stone was also fined $20,000.
A copy of Trump’s executive order and requested clarifications will be handed over to Jackson on Tuesday, the day Stone was originally scheduled to go to prison.
Stone’s lawyer did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on Jackson’s order.
Stone was indicted by the grand jury for the investigation of Russia’s intervention in the 2016 presidential election by Robert Mueller, a special counsel of the jury, and was convicted of seven criminal charges.
The allegations were related to information stolen by Stone during the election to obtain information from WikiLeaks about information stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chief and the Democratic National Committee.
