I'd like the panel to discuss ...

Violation of Ex Post Facto law by federal prosecutors, Ryan Haight Act: stouffletjustice.com

Doctors, pharmacists and internet marketers are serving time in prison for being tried and convicted before the Ryan Haight Act was passed by Congress. Previously, there was no federal law forbidding internet sale of medications with a doctors prescription. Multiple expert attorneys advised these people that the business was legal. However, the court refused to allow them to use the "advice of counsel" defense. There was no criminal intent by these people, yet they were prosecuted before there was a law prohibiting their business model, which is a violation of the ex post facto law.

        WHAT ABOUT A RIGHT TO A FAIR TRAIL!! What good are our rights if when in this situation you are not given a FAIR TRAIL. Yes, what happen to advise of counsel??? He was pushed and harassed into a plea. IS THIS FAIR??? IS THIS JUSTICE??? WHAT KIND OF WORLD ARE WE LIVING IN??? These attorneys never do live up to what they are suppose to stand for!! HOW LEGAL IS ALL OF THIS??? UNFAIR UNFAIR, THE RIGHT TO A FAIR TRAIL????

        What happened in this case is horrific - the federal government has way TOO much power. They simply took an innocent man and gave him no choice in this matter - either say you are guilty or you will go to trial without your only defense - advice of counsel ! Isn't that illegal? According to the US constitution, shouldn't this man have been given the RIGHT TO A FAIR TRIAL instead of being railroaded into a plea???

        Three of Stoufflet's fop tier of attorneys are former Federal Prosecutors. No wonder the attorneys were left out of the indictment. When prosecutors saw the level of legal involvement, they knew they could not win at trial, so they railroaded Stoufflet into a plea.

        The US government should stop this practice of harassing businessmen instead of working for them they are working to supress them, isnt there a better way for the government to earn money??

        The "advice of counsel" is worthless because the attorneys never live up to what they advised. Giving legal opinions is a scam and the government knows it. An attorney who gives legal opinions should be held accountible.
