    I think that he has a right to appeal but I do not think he should be released while awaiting the decision. I base this on the previous appeals being denied and the violence of the crime.

    Prison life

    Well Sam must have assimilated well in prison. He’s following the path of any good felon behind bars…
    I hope they reject his appeal. He’s a stinker of a human being.

    Comment on Mistrial? (January 16th, 2018 at 19:42)


    It sounds like Mullet and his new attorney are essentially asking for a mistrial without calling it that. Basing the motion on attorney errors, though, makes it more of an issue of Mullet’s first attorney being out-lawyered rather than procedure.

      Checked with Dad, who is an attorney. Mistrial can only happen during the actual trial.

  • Mullet prosecutors argue his attorney did a good job

    An update from Cleveland.com – prosecutors are praising the work of Mullet’s attorney, in arguing that the case shouldn’t be overturned:

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — Federal prosecutors wrote Monday that the attorney who represented imprisoned Amish bishop Sam Mullet should stop being so hard on himself because his client is doing more than a decade in prison.

    In fact, he did a good job, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

    “There were no errors, let alone an accumulation of errors so egregious that Mullet was somehow deprived of due process,” wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Bridget Brennan.

    The strange praise came as federal prosecutors fight a challenge by Mullet to his sentence for orchestrating a series of beard and hair-cutting attacks on his enemies.

    Mullet, 72, of Bergholz is serving a federal prison sentence of more than 10 years. He is asking U.S. District Judge Dan Polster to overturn his sentence and argued in a motion filed in January that Edward Bryan, a federal public defender, and co-counsel Wendi Overmyer made a series of mistakes at trial and through two appeals. Had the errors not been made, the trial may have ended differently, Mullet argues.
