Phone Jammer Free to Appeal

After convicted Republican New Hampshire phone jamming kingpin James Tobin was sentenced in May, the judge took the unusual step of denying his motion to stay out of jail while his appeal was heard. He was due to enter a minimum security prison Friday.

Now that decision has been reversed by an appeals court, and Tobin will remain free. So it may be as much as another year before he starts serving his time, even if he loses.

Other players in the case have already served their time and moved on, but Tobin, who’s fought every step of the way, just keeps going. He’s like the Energizer bunny. Except he’s a felon.
