    After the jury imposed the 1¢ fine, the judge vacated it. The law in KY only stipulates that a jury must impose a fine if there is a verdict of guilty, it also grants the judge wide latitude to modify the fine however he or she sees fit.

    It’s not a felony, the “crime” they were barely convicted of is a misdemeanour, and carry about as much weight as Jay walking in many cities which is much more expensive. No weight will be carried.

    Oh, the larger issue of ham-sandwich prosecutions that plague US jurisprudence was dealt a severe blow here. Don’t make your every prosecution a case of full-on disobedience punishment because in many cases disobedience itself will not be punished! If you understand the concept of civil law then this is very re-assuring, but I’m afraid most attorneys have only a wretched view of total subjugation to the state in mind when they prosecute.
