Stevens Denies He's Been Convicted, Despite Guilty Verdict
Professor Robert Weisberg is quoted in the Anchorage Daily News in an article about Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens conviction:
"Of course he's already convicted," said Stanford Law School Professor Robert Weisberg. "Because the chance of getting a conviction overturned in the very court in which you were convicted ... is close to zero."
After sentencing, Stevens will have a chance to appeal. It helps his case that the judge chastised prosecutors for not turning over evidence, Weisberg said.
