Ed, the lawyer, appeared in court today, appearing as Ed the protester, and was told to report for jail on August 8th (I was asked to stay away from the hearing, so this news is word of mouth).
The 6th Circuit appeal was rejected immediately, recently, as was the appeal of the appeal denial (there is a technical term for that, whatever). So this isn't a surprise, at least for us. It was assumed that Ed would be told to report for jail, because the appeal is now dead.
A writ of habeas is the next step, for the State [
of or] Federal Supreme Courts. When that will happen, or if, I do not know.
My lawyer might be in jail when my appeal status hearing occurs, so what happens then is unclear. Jail seems likely.
