That’s not how justice should work, and that is why Americans for Prosperity Foundation, Dream Corps JUSTICE, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the R Street Institute teamed up  to file a cross-ideological brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Osby in Osby v. United States, a case asking the Court to consider whether basing a criminal defendant’s sentence on charges of which the jury acquitted him violates the Fifth or Sixth Amendments. Others including the National Association of Federal Defenders, FAMM , the Cato Institute , and a group of former Federal District Court Judges and law professors  have also weighed in to encourage the Court to intervene. And we believe the Court should.
