Laws are clearly only for the little people.
Navy sailor Kristian Saucier, of Arlington, Vermont, has been sentenced to a year in prison for unauthorized detention of defense information. He will also be forced to serve six months of home confinement with electronic monitoring during his three-year period of supervised probation afterward.
Saucier’s crime? Via NY Daily News:
Saucier admitted to taking six photos of classified areas inside the USS Alexandria in 2009 when it was in Groton and he was a 22-year-old machinist mate on the submarine. The photos showed the nuclear reactor compartment, the auxiliary steam propulsion panel and the maneuvering compartment, prosecutors said.
Saucier took the photos knowing they were classified, but did so only to be able to show his family and future children what he did while he was in the Navy, his lawyers said. He denied sharing the photos with any unauthorized recipient.
“It was a foolish mistake by a very young man,” his lawyer, Greg Rinckey, said after the sentencing. “It’s a very sad case because Kristian Saucier is a fine young man. We don’t believe this was really his true character.”
He will also receive an “other than honorable” discharge from the Navy for this.
Clearly he didn’t have intent. Just like Hillary Clinton supposedly didn’t have intent when she exposed so much classified info on her private email server that even the notes about the FBI meeting with Hillary about her email server are highly classified.
But Hillary walks free to campaign for president and a sailor is “other than honorably” discharged and thrown in the clink for a year over six photos of a submarine.
Saucier actually tried to use the “Hillary defense” but apparently the judge went off on him for it.
“The question of selective prosecution is a very tenuous issue to raise at the time of sentencing,” U.S. District Judge Stefan Underhill said. Wow. Hope that helps Judge Underhill sleep at night.
So there’s one rule for Them and another for the rest of us. It’s the “Criminal Just Us” system at work!
