Georgia Hotness Abigail "Abby" Kemp In A World Of Trouble
Monday morning Abby Kemp will have her first Federal court hearing in Atlanta. It is expected that a US magistrate will set the terms of her release on bond or more likely denial of bond.
Considering the Fed's role Ms. kemp is in a world of deep shit. Fed's apparently like to charge perps like Kemp under the Hobbs Act. Those convicted often see sentences in excess of 20 yeas.
From the FBI:
A Look at the Hobbs Act
The federal Hobbs Act, passed in 1946, was an amendment to the 1934 Anti-Racketeering Act. Both laws target labor racketeering and organized crime activities. But the Hobbs Act has also been used successfully in recent years against armed robbers who victimize businesses because the law criminalizes obstruction, delay, or impact on interstate commerce by robbery (or extortion) with the use of actual or threatened force.
In general, there are three main advantages to charging suspects under the Hobbs Act:
- The penalties are harsher than in local prosecutions. Sentences of 20, 30, and 50 years—and even life sentences—have already been handed out by federal courts around the country.
- Since the federal system has no parole, anyone receiving a federal sentence serves out the full term (no early-out for good behavior).
- Faced with long prison sentences, some of the suspects in these cases will cooperate with law enforcement and prosecutors—giving up names and knowledge of other crimes—in return for reduced sentences.
That's a long way from the day when she posed for a series of photos high above the streets of Atlanta.
