In an earlier post about TDPK’s psych evaluation prior to his first release on parole, the examining psychologist noted that Kimberlin insisted that his only crime was “selling some pot while I was younger.”
The following is from the appeals court decision [7 F.3d 527 (1993)] upholding the Parole Commission’s handling of TDPK’s parole hearings:
After being convicted of the bombings and related offenses, Kimberlin was sentenced to a fifty-year term of imprisonment for manufacturing and possessing a destructive device, and malicious damage by explosives with personal injury in violation of 26 U.S.C. §§ 5861(d) and (f), and 18 U.S.C. §§ 844(f) and (i). He received a concurrent twelve-year sentence for impersonating a federal officer, illegal use of a Department of Defense insignia, and illegal use of the Presidential Seal in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 912, 701, and 713, respectively, and a five-year term for receipt of explosives by a convicted felon in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 842(i)(1). Finally, he was given a four-year sentence by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas on an earlier, unrelated conviction for conspiracy to distribute marijuana.
Kimberlin’s sentences were aggregated by the Bureau of Prisons and, pursuant to 28 C.F.R. § 2.5, were treated by the Commission as a single aggregate sentence of fifty-one years, six months, and nineteen days.
That’s a bit more than merely selling some dope. Indeed, less than 8% of TDPK’s sentence was related to importing a wholesale quantity (5 tons) of marijuana from Colombia.
<mockery>TDPK goes on and on about false narratives. He has spun so many himself that one wonders if he can separate all his tall tales from the truth.</mockery>
