U.S. v. Garcia (9th Cir. - Aug. 10, 2007)

You don't typically see someone sentenced in the federal system to over 100 years (or "1284 months") in prison. Nor do you typically see an AUSA mislead a district court on a fairly basic principle of law -- one that's so obvious that the U.S. is forced to confess error on this point in the Court of Appeals (see footnote 1).

But both occur here.
