SCOTUS Lets Ex-Guv McDonnell Remain Free While It Mulls His Appeal


Convicted Virginia ex-Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) may remain free while the Supreme Court mulls whether to take up his appeal.

The Court on Monday overturned a lower court’s rejection of McDonnell’s request to stay out from behind bars pending his appeal of federal corruption convictions, according to the Associated Press. It’s a win for the former governor, who otherwise would have had to report to prison to begin serving a two year sentence.
